beaded poinsettia

beaded poinsettia, originally uploaded by orangejack.

A few years ago we planted a simple Christmas poinsettia in the front yard by the house. The thing has grown like crazy.

We can’t get it to fully turn red, but it’s still a beautiful plant when it’s green.

Thankfully, I got the opportunity to capture these huge rain droplets on the poinsettia. This is also my new desktop wallpaper.

    Getting ’em to turn red is like a royal pain in the patooshee. Ever read that mess? “Cover with a box for X number of hours each day. Do not expose to light until…”

    Great shot

    Yeah…so we dont even try to.

    But some of the leaves down low covered up some will turn red during the year…just not the entire bush. That thing is about 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide anyway. Way too tough!
