The Traditional Poinsettia

During the winter break, after the first of the year, I went to Rawlings Conservatory.  Because the weather had been so dreary and wet, I didn’t want to go and play with my new camera outside.  It didn’t hurt that I knew they were having a poinsettia festival of sorts.  I’m not a fan of the flower personally, but I’ve found that winter, especially here in Maryland, brings with it such depression that any color is a welcomed sight.

I hadn’t posted the photos because it was after the holiday and they just looked so festive.  They even still had their Christmas tree up.  It was very beautiful.  But not wholly appropriate for me to post after the season had come to an end.  That said.

I do want to share with you this poinsettia tree that they’d constructed.  It’s real and very pretty.  I hope you enjoy it too.

  1. That poinsettia tree is beautiful! It’s good to see the poinsettia getting a little appreciation after the holiday has passed. They’re not really a favorite of mine either but I always feel a little sorry for them after Christmas is over!

    1. I know right? They look so pitiful when you still see them in the store after Christmas has passed. You can’t help but feel sorry for them being passed over, rejected, and left behind. I wonder what happens to them after the holiday season has passed. I hope they don’t end up in a dumpster somewhere. I know the conservatory where I took this photo had them everywhere, all different types. This is just the one I chose to share. I should have asked them what they plan to do with the ones that they don’t sell.


It's your turn to say something... What do you think?
