Joyous Wishes and a Merry Christmas to You All !

The photo above is a shot of our Christmas poinsettia bush.  Last year our church had a number of potted poinsettias left over from their Christmas decorations and they offered these plants to their church members.  When the small pot was brought home it contained a wilted little poinsettia bush that looked to be on its last and final days so we planted it outside, gave it some water and hoped for the best.  This Christmas it has astounded us with its amazing growth and the amount and size of its poinsettia blossoms. (Yes I know that the red petals are not petals at all but are modified leaves and that the actual blossoms are the tiny little yellow flowers adorning the center of these brilliant red bracts - still, flower or modified leaves,  they are spectacular.)

To all my lovely blogging buddies, I know I've been lax about blogging this past year and I pray that in 2014 I can do better.  I do appreciate you all and think you're truly wonderful.  I wish each and every one a Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays - Joyous Season - or the seasonal greetings you prefer.  Best wishes to you all - each and every one -  Anna Maria of A Beader's Blog


  1. Wow! That's a gorgeous plant!!

    Merry Christmas!! Wishing you all the best that the Holiday Season has to offer.

    Pop on over to get a glimpse of my "white" tree! :-)

  2. WOW! I have never in my life seen a poinsettia bush! Only the 2 or 3 you get in a potted plant. They are so beautiful and I feel bad for them after the holidays when they are abandoned and thrown away.

  3. I tried the same thing, but they died within 3 months. Our acidic, shady yard just doesn't support much plant life! Yours are gorgeous!

  4. That is a beautiful Poinsettia, I forgot to buy any this year, oops!

    My Dear Blogger Buddy, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Holidays and you were able to get everything done so you could relax and enjoy the time together :)

    Cheers, T. :)

  5. Oh, they are truly spectacular! I've been lax about my blog too, and I hope you know I count you as a true bloggy friend. I hope your Christmas was everything you hoped it would be! XOXO

  6. Beautiful Poinsettia! The color is a healthy rich red. I kill mine every year. Lucky if they make it to Christmas day. lol Hope your Christmas was blessed & wonderful.
