    Good for you!!! That's wonderful! Give us your secrets! I kept mine from last year all this year, but haven't really tried to get it to bloom.

    I don't know! Here was the cycle on it--gave it to Mom at Christmas in the assisted living, only to find it unwatered and just yellow stalks, no leaves a couple of weeks after Christmas. Took home and put it in a window all winter and watered it a lot and it got new leaves. Then it got too big for the window so in about June, I put it outside where it got really big, then brought it in and put it in the living room in a southfacing window, but the room is pretty cool most of the time. But I didn't keep it out of the light. But it was cool in that room?

    If it went dormant, it was way last January.

    I just don't know.

    That is so beautiful! I love the white ones and don't particularly like the red ones myself.

    That is a vigorous plant! Nice to see as I dislike tossing my poinsettia as the leaves just drop off despite watering and fertilizer but the lighting in my house is not great for plants needing bright light.

    A couple weeks ago I committed to chairing a substantial thing in (what I thought was) our next summer, 2022.

    A couple of other things have been added to that same period. And I’ve been walking around in a daze for 48 hours thinking how the hell am I gonna do all that plus that will be a time when we’re moving probably, oh hell no this is going to be something I can’t pull off.


    But then I read communications carefully and I see that I’ve committed to the year 2023. Yes it is summer 2023 that I have to pull off this obligation.


    Well then never mind the worry and fretting, it will all be OK! Yay, it will be fun!

    Make sure the 2023 is not a typo.

    That is true! But I now know 2023 is our in-real-life lily show in
    Chicago in 2023 because the group has planned a virtual show for 2022.

    Here we have the best bulldog who ever lived : “ Baggy Pants”.

    Beautiful, smart, well behaved. She was a show dog who was well trained. She died in 2009. Loved that girl so much!!!

    This is her, and me, at a Fun Match where she won best in Match.
