The Colour Of Christmas

Poinsettias personify Christmas for me.

Their beautiful rich, warm red leaves, and the dark, emerald green shades of the foliage surrounding them are so perfectly comforting and festive, that I can’t go a single year without buying an annual poinsettia come December. There is something both uplifting and welcoming about seeing this bright plant on the kitchen table, and I never get tired of waking up to come downstairs and be greeted by this happy little plant each day.

So for this Photo Friday I wanted to share some photos of one of my favourites things about this time of year – pretty poinsettias! I wanted these photos to hopefully bring some festive cheer into everyone’s Friday evening, especially if you’re in need of a pick me up on these cold, winter nights, so I won’t type much more here, but I hope they make you smile as much as they did for me.

    Did y’ know that Poinsettias are named after Joel Roberts Poinsett who was Secretary of War for the USA? Not many Secretaries of War have flowers named after them! I’ve never had much success at keeping these plants alive so prefer to enjoy them in pictures these days. Have a good weekend.

    Hello, Tasha! I hope you’ve been enjoying this holiday season and staying warm during these frigid winter months. I love poinsettias too–your vibrant detail shots are so festive! Every time I see a poinsettia, I laugh a bit because I had a friend who loved making them “bleed”–she found the milky liquid that came from their leaves quite amusing. Her mother would then joke with her, saying: “If you make my poinsettia bleed, I’ll make you bleed!”

    Anyways, wishing you the best during the new year!
