Today's Flower

I haven't had time to post these past couple of weeks on Today's Flower. I bought this Poinsettia the other week, its a new variety, which reminds me of a Candy Cane, and is so pretty.

I havn't seen this variety. A candy cane is a good description of it. It's quite shiny like a candy cane. I'm sure it will become a new best seller in the market place.

I haven't bought myself a poinsettia yet and must do so. I was hoping I might get one as a gift- oh well...

Candy cane poinsetta looks luscious enough to eat! But I won't, I'll just look and enjoy.

I have seen poinsettia in plain color - seeing two colors in the leaf made it look so interestingly beautiful. I love it.

I just love poinsettias but I have a brown thumb so I have to get the fake ones. And...keep them dust free. I don't know what's harder watering a plant or dusting a fake one. lol

They are so beautiful but somehow I always manage to kill them. I suspect it is the central heating. It's got so I won't buy them anymore as it makes me feel like a murderer.

Love the candy cane effect! [Reminds me of the bag of Lindt chocolate balls I bought today in 'dark chocolate w/peppermint centers.']
Thanks for the bit of Christmas cheer!
