Friday flower


I'm going quite Christmasy for this Friday Flower with my poinsettia.
I purchased this plant last Christmas and have been surprised to see it has kept it's red leaves all year long, despite often being very neglected. Whoops :)
Happy Friday!

  2. That is very festive ... I'm sure I saw recently that poinsettias come in a range of red and pinkish-hues now ... which gives a non-traditional slant to the traditional Christmas plant.

    I'm sure I saw that somewhere.

  10. The poinsettia's are such a brilliant festive plant with the perfect red leaves. Have you seen them in pink? I've got one I planted earlier in the year and it's looking good. They're called the Princettia. :) In our last house there was a Poinsettia at least a couple of decades old. I used to cut it back to knee height, just a stumpy little thing and it would grow back in busy abundance to at least 3 metres high. (Sorry too much plant talk? - I do love to garden!) Sonia :)

  11. Beautiful pointsetta!
    I love your winter wonderland mantel. Right up my alley. Really like an all white decorating, even though I don't do it myself, I'd kind of like to because it is so crisp and classy.
    Your study room makes me happy. It's a feel good room, more of the bright and light that I like. The bluish turquoise details are such a nice pop of color. Just enough.

    Hugs from Boston,
