Murphy's Law?

If you'll notice the picture of me I have a beautiful pink poinsettia. I got it a few weeks before Christmas and enjoyed it until after Easter. It was still pretty when I put it out in my little cottage. I can't kill poinsettias. They last, and last and last.

So when a neighbor asked me the other day if I would take care of her Christmas poinsettia while they were gone to California for 10 days I said "sure". It was very wet when she brought it over but I sat it in the window. They were gone barely 2 days and the leaves started falling..........and falling...................and falling. By the time they got back home there was nothing left of her plant but a stick! If nothing can go wrong, something will!
Until next time,
God bless you,
Diane

EEEK! Sounds like my luck! Oh, my. Was she upset? They are funny, funny plants in terms of where they like to be for sure.
