poinsettia ~ 12/24/11 ~ Monterey

poinsettia / flor de nochebuena
Euphorbia pulcherrima

Have you ever seen a 2-story tall poinsettia? While several neighborhood yards have blooming poinsettias that are the size of bushes, this is the tallest one I've found. Poinsettias originate from Mexico. Today we went for a sunny afternoon walk just so I could take a picture for Nature ID. Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas!
