Sometimes plants can be revived and do well outside! We had a poinsettia that was dying after Christmas. We planted it outside in the Spring, and it thrived every year by taking it indoors for the winter and planting it outside in summer. It even bloomed every year! #10264114

Beautiful presentation Patrick and glad it survived for you. Canada was beautiful but my computer got broken and my 24 to 105 favorite lens froze and both are now in repair. Can only post old non processed photos and comment occasionally on office computer. Catching up slowly. #10269202

The detail captured with such a wonderful DOF makes this a stunning image Patrick. #10271029

After this Easter Lily had died off my wife planted it in the garden-for an experiment. This was the result a few days ago.
