Christmas Poinsettias

We have our very own Poinsettia Greenhouse Nursery in the town I live. Every year I have gotten a Christmas card from where I work, with a gift certificate in it for a Christmas Poinsettia. They aren't my favorite flower, but I do have fond memories of them from when my grandma was alive. I would walk into her living room and it would be full of these flowers on a table next to her great window. She would also have a collection of flowering forced bulbs. The sun would shine through this window and you could feel the warmth from the sun. A perfect spot for these flowers.

There are red wagons ready outside the door to load the poinsettias. During the month of December, the platforms of churches are loaded with these flowers. It really is beautiful!

The door is painted with Poinsettias welcoming you.

When you walk in, the warmth of the nursery rushes in on your face and then you understand why everyone is running around with just a t-shirt on.

There are rows and rows of tables loaded with a variety of colors and poinsettias.

I always choose a white one with a green hue to it, as it will match with my decor better than the red or pink would.

  1. Oh Angela I so missed Duarte Nursery this year. The poinsettias down here were just ugly in comparison. I really got spoiled living up North and getting those flowers every year, and at a great price too.

    I love the white ones, and I usually got at least on of those.

    Happy New Year Sweet Girl.
