From this past year you might remember this poinsettia and this orchid. We've never had luck in keeping such plants alive to bloom again. But take note of Mom's new Hungarian green thumb holding the orchid pot. With the first frosts, the orchid is blooming again and the poinsettia leaves are turning red in time for Christmas.
Don't ask what she did differently in Hungary. It may have been the loving neglect by the window facing our balcony that did the job.
