Pink Poinsettia


Poinsettia
Euphorbia pulcherrima
(yoo-FOR-bee-uh) (pul-KAIR-ih-muh)

It’s a little late for Poinsettias but this the only one we had this year. Since it officially hit the junk pile yesterday I thought it was fitting to post today. It was amazing to me that when we went to buy Poinsettias all of the wholesale places had about 1/10th of the stock that have had in previous years. A sign o’ the times probably, sigh.

This pink Poinsettia was actually a hanging basket and that was nice because it draped over the table it was placed on. Juno the Siberian Husky wouldn’t leave it alone and kept chewing the leaves. The dog never showed any ill effects but I did noticed she wasn’t eating the leaves just chewing them up.

Yesterday I went to the Tim Burton exhibit at the MoMa. More about that tomorrow. This picture was taken with the Nikon Coolpix P6000.

Look forward to the Tim Burton post. Have a Christmas tree that looks like it could be from him...rusty metal wire with bells at the tip of each branch and a rusty star at the top. I can email a picture to you if you want. Let me know.

I love poinsettias, the red ones and the cream. It's funny how I never think of them until Christmas comes around.

Hi Janet,

No photos inside the exhibit was kind of a bummer. I haven't seen the Nightmare Before Christmas but am going to rent it now that I have seen some of background.

Hi Kala, thanks for stopping by. Poinsettias have been a part of my life since I was a wee lad. It is always nice to see them come around again.
