Her er det kommet til mange flotte bilder siden sist jeg hadde tid og ork til å besøke deg. Julestjerna er en fin blomst. Jeg klarer ikke å bestemme meg for hvem som er finest, den røde eller den hvite. Mulig kombinasjonen av de to er skjønnest. :-)

Jeg liker julestjern. I had to go to the shop as I haven't got any Christmas plants in my house yet, apart from the arrangement I got last week.

Excellent zoom in, and splash of red. That color makes a difference come cold weather season way up north.

Christmas Star flower you call it in Norway. We call it Poinsettia. It is a very pretty plant to have in the house at this time of year. I have written about its history on my blog today.
