Most poinsettias are thrown away after Christmas. This one survived long enough to become ‘just’ green. Only the red stems give a hint of the colourful bracts that will be produced when the short days return.
These leaves are a bit more jazzy, but I couldn’t resist. I think Cee will let me get away with them.
While walking a few days ago, the patterns made by emerging foliage caught my eye. I have no idea what it is – perhaps someone can help? It was nobody’s treasure, either a weed or a garden escape, and its habit was vigorous and spreading.
As the leaves age, they broaden and are less orderly. The yellow splodges are buttercups.
I’ll leave you with a green scene:
