'Christmas Rose'

'Christmas Rose', originally uploaded by Gardening in a Minute.

This is one of the varieties I bought. I went with more traditional colors this year. This one is really unusual and I like the way the bracts seem to form flowers.

Christmas Cactus

This was the color Christmas cactus I got. I think I bought a purple one last year, but since it's not blooming I don't really remember.

Poinsettia Field Day

Today was the UF Poinsettia Open House. I arrived at 8 am and it was already crazy. I bought 3 poinsettias for myself, 2 for mother-in-law, and a Christmas cactus (since I didn't get my to bloom this year).

I also took a lot of pictures and practiced with the macro lens. This was one of the best shots I got. The lighting looks really good. White poinsettias are not my favorite, but they were very pretty today.
