Oh beautiful. Please tell me how to take care of it. Mine isn't doing so well.

Your Aaron Rose quote is SO true, Mary, and your photos illustrate it beautifully. Thanks!

Yours are polite and punctual. Mine keep me waiting long past Christmas. Love how you caught their delicacy.

So pretty. It must be such color in your cold and wintry world

Petrea: We water it and give it lots of sun. It's a miracle it's still alive and blooming since neither of us has a green thumb.

Diane: Thanks! That quote speaks to me, too.

Karin: It does seem to be punctual, although I have no idea how it knows. I love how the petals like glowing tissue paper.

Margaret: Thanks -- and we do need the warmth of the color with the frigid weather we've been having.
