The Christmas Eve flower….

  • The “poinsettia”, is sometimes called the “flower of Christmas Eve” or “flower of the blessed night”. This plant from Mexico was introduced to the United States in 1828 by Dr. Joel Poinsett, the 1st US ambassador to Mexico. The flower was renamed in Poinsett’s honor.

Each year I promise myself to get one and I never do… 😦  Maybe next year. 🙂
