Day 347: Beautiful Poinsettas

Look at these most beautiful poinsettas! My doorbell rang, and there they were, with this card: "We love and miss you!. . . . Lee and Maria"

My brother, Lee, and sister-in-law, Maria live in the Chicago area, some 700 miles far, far away, and this gift at the door literally brought tears to my eyes. I don't even remember the last time I was in Chicago. . . . and I'm so hoping I'll make it this May to my nephew, David's hs graduation!

Great colors and light in these photos, Angela, and the container is so pretty! Mine sits in its boring plastic pot with foil wrapper.

Love the color in these, Anglea! The pot (although I hate to use such a pedestrian term) is gorgeous. Really like the way you caught the little angel with the light coming through her.
