|Each year, as the Christmas Season winds down, there is an abundance of discarded Poinsettias to be found. With a bit of effort, I scrounge these discards, as many as I want/need.
Then, with care these soon to be recycled plants are not threatened by frost, or, heaven forbid, snow or a freeze, those Poinsettias are available to go back in the ground come Spring.
I mention this bit of recycling because, today, when I viewed that slight row of green and red, glistening from a bit of moisture, they were simply gorgeous.
No tree hugger am I, but recycling of discarded Poinsettias does add a bit of beauty to the landscape during the holidays.
Were we to not protect our heritage, then, who would?
