Scarlet Star


I am feeling very merry lately! And really, who wouldn't, with so many pretty poinsettias around?

For a country that only celebrates Christmas commercially, we are really into it. All the flower shops are full of Christmas related flowers and plants, poinsettias being the most popular. It really livens the place up!

Oooh lovely!

Every time I have one, it dies within a week. This year is no exception. :-(

Very nice flowers. They also have them in white around here.

They certainly do put you in the Christmas mood!

I posted a Poinsettia with wonderful patterns I was given a couple of days ago on the 'piece of nature at home' blog.

May they shine like the stars for you, making it a wonderful Christmas.

Please have a good Tuesday.

Nice texture contrast with the checked tiles. The colors of the poinsettias are so vibrant—almost “hot pink.”

I found another Scarlett “star” that can be used as a Christmas (tree) decoration here.

There's something special about the shade of red in a poinsettia.

Wonderful pink poinsettias, Kaori! Almost look edible, like candy!
