"The holiday's connection to the poinsettia originated with a Mexican legend. With nothing to give to the Christ Child, a youngster picked a bouquet of weeds as an offering. As the gift was presented, the weeds transformed into brilliant red blooms. Since then, the plant is known in Mexico as Flores de Noche Buena (Flowers of the Holy Night), or just nochebuena for short. The poinsettia's red "flowers" aren't actual flowers. They're bracts (modified leaves), and the little yellow centers are the flowers."
I'm definitely a gardening enthusiast! Hubby and I have worked together to create the landscape you see in our yard. I've enjoyed planting flowers since I was 17 years old and of course that has evolved into a wider range of things. Trial and error have taught me a lot but there is always more to learn!
I'm grateful you've stopped by and I welcome you to follow along!
