Red Fox Poinsettia


Euphorbia pulcherrima ‘Red Fox Premium Miro’

(yoo-FOR-bee-uh) (pul-KAIR-ih-muh)

Since it is Christmas Eve here is a shot of a nice Poinsettia. Not my favorite plant but nice to have around during the holiday. When I went to get a couple of ‘Points’ at the local nursery I couldn’t believe how many had been sold since the last visit. I wasn’t hopeful about snagging some nice ones but did find this nicely colored one. The cultivar name may not be correct it is more of a strain type of name.

No matter the name it is still brightening up the house and adding a little cheer to the house.

Like a lot of other families our celebration will be a little scaled back from previous years. The only thing we couldn’t scrimp on was our granddaughter’s presents. Nothing like seeing Christmas magic in a six year olds eye. She doesn’t understand about the economy and how work went this year so she will be getting her usual large haul of stuff. I hope all of your Christmas dreams come true. I can’t wait to start playing my new guitar but have figured out I need a new amplifier (oh no $$$ lol) but will have to continue with the one I have for awhile (like spring). Right now I am using a Line 6 Spider IV75.

It's a nice amp but overly complicated in my opinion. I sometimes wonder if the engineers and designers actually use the products they put out.

"Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl.

But it warmed more than your body.

It warmed your heart...filled it, too, with melody that would last forever."

Poinsettia is so beautiful flower. Christmas is celebrated with lights and flowers so that's a nice option. Interesting stuff shared here.
