Just The Bracts, Ma’am

These are the bracts of a Poinsettia; for the longest time…years, I thought these were leaves, the flower.

These are the flower

  4. This is our most typical christmas flower, but I don’t know how to get it from the shop and home at the moment. It is freezing 18 below zero. Enjoyd your photos in the meantime.

    Great photographs. The colours are excellent in them all, but my favourite is the first one. It’s such a simple and well done composition. And the water drops adds a lovely flare to the picture.

      Thank you Otto. The red in this Poinsettia is so rich. I had been concentrating on the middle/flower part of the plant, but knew that the stars of the show were the red bracts. That little drizzle really did apply just the right size of water droplets. Glad you like it.

      Thanks GC. We had just gotten the plant at the store, ran to the car through a drizzle, and I insisted on holding it in the car so it wouldn’t fall over and get broken branches. I snapped some photos with my iPhone as we rode home.
