Poinsettias are beginning to flower in our gardens and available at local garden shops to brighten our homes. They come in colors from red, pink, white, but the favorite is red. It is best to buy them early since the supply is sometimes limited.
November is almost over but the Christmas holidays don’t seem real until we get our Thanksgiving meal digested. Poinsettias don’t seem to care since they are beginning to show color now. Folks on the mainland think of the poinsettia as a Christmas flower but for us it blooms now through March.
