They arrived on Monday and I was pleasantly surprised as they were much bigger than I expected.
The only issue I had was that the pots were wrapped with the ever attractive foil...
Since red and I aren't friends on a good day, and I eliminated it from my Christmas decor a few years back, I knew it just wouldn't do!
First order if business was to get this of the foil. My initial idea was to wrap the pot with a length of burlap runner I had, but the pot was tapered so it wrapped weirdly....
After some rummaging around in my Chrustmas boxes, I found a vase from a past Christmas arrangement that fit much better with my color scheme. I knew being a hoarder would pay off someday! ;)
(The picture makes it look a little wonky but the pot isn't as dinky as it looks above)
Unfortunately, my work one that started out lovely on Monday:
Now looks like this:
Thankfully Salisbury greenhouse has kindly offered me a replacement!
Does anyone else still do poinsettias? Or us everyone else on the amaryllis/paper white wagon?
