A quick trip back to Sweet Peas Garden Shop today to take in the lush blooms of Christmas!
White hydrangeas and red poinsettias. Beautiful together.
I love the heady scent of freshly blooming paperwhites this time of year.
This was always my mom's favorite color poinsettia.
Virginia, Chuckeroon has had a nasty fall.
Absolutely love, love, love the top photo!!! Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, and contrast between them and the pointsettias is stunning!!!
un beau patchwork de couleurs pour noel, superbes
Give me the paper whites anyday. I don't know quite why but poinsettias never did it for me.
Wishing you and yours a most joyous holiday season.
Did you see the blog yesterday that featured bright blue poinsettias? Very unusual, altho I prefer your traditional red and pink poinsettias.
Beautiful flowers for the season. This year I have a poinsettia that peachy color...love it. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
PS. If you're interested in seeing the the blue plant, it's on Jarart's Phoenix blog.
Ah, those paperwhites are particularly lovely.
Ahh, the flowers of Christmas! Narcissus is my favorite flower.
Thank you for this living splash of color on a dreary gray day. The paperwhites are especially lovely.
Your mom and I agree -- I always buys this color. And I could just smell those paperwhites.
Kate...do you have a link to the blue pointsettias??? I've tried to locate the blog you referred to and couldn't find it...
Joyeux Noël Virginia, toutes les fleurs sont là.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family. Enjoy the season!
Very festive. I love flowers at christmas. :)
Julie, thanks for the heads up regarding our friend Chuckeroon at http://richmonduponthamesdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2009/12/pause-in-service.html
If you follow his blog, please jump over and leave him a comment. He's going to need lots of prayers and good wishes through his recovery.
Ah - color, color, color and appropriate to the season.
I was going to post a picture on Friday of a toy mother and baby polar bear in front of a Buddhist thanka with a big Christmas bow photoshopped onto it but my editor thinks it might offend Buddhists. We'll have to find something or other.
You're smart to listen to that editor! Keeping you in line is a full time job I would think! :)
It’s that time of year again! I’m doing the rounds and apologising for my complete failure to more regularly offer comment on everybody’s incredible efforts for the year. I know how hard it can be to keep up with the daily grind of everyday posting, and want to thank you for your efforts.
I especially want to wish festive greetings for all from down here at [nearly] the end of the world, the bottom of Tasmania.

Lovely fleurs! I'll go check in on Chuckeroon. I'm not a regular but I hope he won't mind.
Have a Merry Festivus, Virg!
