16th December: Bernard’s triumph.

Bernard puts an all green plant in the shed

Bernard has been growing a poinsettia, a plant often given at Christmas. It starts out all green, but if it has the right mix of light and dark, the top leaves, or ‘bracts’ go red. Bernard put his in the shed and covered the window up to make it dark.

And it worked! He is very proud of it, and it’s just perfect for our tree.
