Late bloomer

My 40 year old poinsettia is nuts this year. Because it lives in the corner by the door and evening light from across the room is minimal, it "blooms" every year, usually after Valentine's Day. This year it bloomed in late February as usual. Much to my surprise, it grew more red for Easter and has just presented me with a third bloom. I love this plant!

I'm a bit embarrassed to post this photo of the entire plant because it shows the unfinished inside of my house. But it is as it is.
