THE POINSETTIA
Livin' and Lovin' it in Greece |

Dearest friends, colleagues,

and all of you sharing these tough times with us

A small tale instead of wishes, or rather, as wishes:
The poincettia
The poincettia is a bright red, glorious flower that reigns in our Christmas home.
It stands proud, arrogant, but…..ephemeral!
It only lasts for a few days, forgetful of its limited life.
One day….it dies!
What’s left of its deceptive beauty is bare stems, which, rumor has it, can be even toxic!
It is very difficult to induce the plant to reflower. It requires a  period of uninterrupted long, dark nights in order to develop flowers again.
Incidental light during this period will only hamper flower production.
HOWEVER!
If you are determined to keep hold of your used-to-be beautiful flower, you can!
You treat it properly, with love, but wisdom as well.
You don’t water it too much-it hates excessive water.
You expose it to the light gradually and you make sure it doesn’t get any parasitic diseases.
And, above all, you target at making it proud, delightful, and eminent again!
(All comparisons to real-life situations are welcome.)

OUR WARMEST WISHES for CHRISTMAS and
A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
