Yes that is correct 2010 Dec. This flower has never fallen off . It isn't the same as when I purchased it but I am amazed a how good it looks. I have planted them outside in the spring and they have gotten 3 feet tall but this one I left in my studio and it really looks good. I have a dark room in the basement that I have used a timer to make it change color but only once did that work for me. This has spent the year in a east window where it is very bright.
I am in the process of cleaning my Studio so maybe I can get more work done and be able to find things when I need them.
We have our County Beef meeting this week and the 19th we will go to Johnson County and have a regional meeting seems like we have a lot of meetings jammed into a few months. Get caught up over the winter months. Enjoy this weather and stay safe
