Due to some horrible neglect ~ this is how it looks today. Pretty sad looking :(
It's been sitting in my basement since I brought it in last fall so it wouldn't freeze. Well, I not only saved it from freezing ... I also didn't water it ... and now it was dead. At least ... that's what I thought.
After a little poking around on it and clipping off the dried up blossoms and some of the dried up stems ... I found that some of the stems still had a little green in them and they were still a little pliable. Maybe there's still some life left in this poor neglected plant.
My other bougainvillea plant ~ a pink one ... is still thriving... and blossoming.
I have it sitting in a sunny window.
I'm pickling up some eggs today ...
... they look just like they belong in an Easter basket ... all the different colors. Please don't ask me what kind of chickens they are that laid them ~ all I know is they're from four different breeds. I have white eggs, brown eggs, tan colored and blueish green eggs ~ cool.
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
