It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, in my garden :-)

My poinsettia outside is just now turning red. It might be too late for Christmas and this is talked about in Hawaii garden forums - poinsettias that are planted in the yard get their red leaves sometime in January.
This one on the picture was indoors in a small pot last Christmas (2007) and was moved outside sometime in February, still in the pot, until May 6, 2008. By the time I started my garden I saw it by the corner of the fence in a dried-out pot but the plant looking pathetic and was barely alive. I was able to save it on time which is why this is one of my special favorites in my garden, next to my mango!
