Today's Flowers

This week, the Today's Flower team wanted a Christmas theme. As I had already posted photos of my Christmas Cactus and Poinsettia today (prior post) I thought I would do something different, that says Christmas.

The first post is of my Poinsettia place mats, that I use on my living room coffee table.



Again more poinsettias this time on my kitchen table cloth, that my mother gave me, first a close up:



Now the whole tablecloth:



Then I know this is not a flower, but it says Christmas.



As always, click on the photos for more details. For more of Today's Flower photos, please click on this link

(look for more snow/winter photos tomorrow)

I think you've done a good job of combining Christmas and flowers. Thanks for including the last picture -- it is definitely 'Christmasy'!

Love your poinsettias.
I have not always been a fan of them, but they are beginning to grow on me.

I love that tablecloth! Are the poinsettias embroidered, or crocheted? Or made with some other method?
Thanks for sharing!

Now if I had snow like that, I'd be out there making snow sculptures. When we lived in Montreal I made A whole family 12 foot tall in our front yard.
Happy snowplowing!
