Poinsettia Leaves

Poinsettias can add cheerful color ┬áto a house around the holidays. I have a beautiful bushy dark red one that everyone loves. The photo below, though, is of a scrawny pinkish one that I purchased solely because I liked its color. Initially I had buyer’s remorse. Afterall, who buys a skinny poinsettia? A skinny poinsettia is like a skinny Santa. I found new appreciation for this little plant, however, once I started photographing it because its sparse form allows the individual leaves to really show. Happy Holidays!
