Poinsettias



Our former neighbor's poinsettias give color to the area.

Vibrant color - are there any really big poinsettia bushes around there?

the poinsettas are pretty but I really love the old brick
there's something so sturdy and comforting and beautiful about old brick

Beautiful photos. I love Poinsettias. We just planted two in the front yard. I wonder if they'll live after the freezing temps last night?

Have a great week,
Cindy

They sure dress up that planter. Nice to be able to have them outside.

I like poinsettias, I think they are beautiful flowers. I love this little details that make our days brighter, like decorating once's front yard, mail box or house number.

A lovely shot. gives credence to livingin a tropical area.

@ Three Rivers - I don't know what you mean by "really big," but we have poinsettia bushes in our back yard that grow to about 5-6 feet...

I have a feeling our hard freezes of the past few nights will do them in, though. Ugh!

Tricia said...

They sure do - They're so preeeeety!

I'm so used to associating poinsettias with snow, it's wonderful to see them in a green context.

All my best wishes for this New year.
So strange for me to see the poinsettias in the middle of leafy trees!!
Not the case here!

Twenty-something degrees tonight? I wonder if you're really still in Florida. Thanks for your very nice comment about my Florida zebras. The red color is brightening quite a few peoples' day, I think. It's warmer here, but it's been raining most of the last 24 hours. Nothing too unusual, but the red is very welcome!

color that warms us, here is gray

Hilda said...

Now that is a pretty and understated decoration for Christmas.

Some of the few photos on the Internet lately not involving snow. Lovely photos.

What, no pictures of packing crates and movers? People love to share the misery

Ilse said...

Amazing that these plants live outdoors! In Boston, pointsetta can sustain damage just being too near a drafty window.

Love these flowers, a bright start for the new year, Jacob.

I love the red!! Pointsettias are really not my favorite plant but I do like the bright red color. I propagated them for many years in a greenhouse where I worked. we started taking cuttings in mid-June. I did like that part.
