In this case it's Poinsettia's!
I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.  It's been a most wonderful month for us.
A few things could be better, but in life..that is always the case. 

This is my front porch..and I couldn't resist taking photo's of the raindrops on those deep red beautiful blooms.  Like Druid diamonds...with a promise of things to come, somehow lost by the Christmas Fairies.
I like to think they were dropped there just for you and I to find.

God bless all of you and thank you for everything you have given me...but most of all for your friendship and love.
I'll see you after Christmas.  In the meantime...stay safe.

An abundance of Blessings to you and your family, and Merle (of course).

I love the bunny on the porch. Be safe and prayers are being said to stop the rain in Southern California.

Heaps of Hugs & Hot Chocolate, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

O, Mona..I thought of you and all your beautiful poinsettias as my ONE began to lose so many leaves, I had to fill the pot in with holly and berries, just to last thru Christmas day. :)) Not sure what was wrong but it didn't last very long at all.

I'm so glad you had a good Christmas. I had a beautiful one the minute all my family gathered, happy, healthy and close. All the other gifts were just icing on the cake. :))
hugs, bj
