Chopped Poinsettias

Yesterday was the day for the poinsettias and paperwhites,  took them outside and emptied all the pots in the garden, and chopped up the flowers and and stems. But not before cutting a few blooms to enjoy for a little while longer (thanks for the tip, Eileen). I usually throw them out earlier, but they were so pretty this year I kept them a little longer. And with March approaching, I'm starting to think spring, and poinsettias don't really say spring. Today is supposed to get into the 50s, so I may try to get outside this afternoon and clean up the hellebores. I'm seeing lots of blooms, but they are mostly hidden by the old and battered foliage.
