  • Poinsettias are synonymous with the holiday season.  Their bright red, pink or white leaves are beautiful as standalone plants or as components of bigger holiday displays.

    It may surprise many to know that in their native climate, this subtropical plant can grow to lofty heights of more than 10 feet.  In the United States, poinsettias are grown as indoor potted plants, most in heated greenhouses.

  • “Walk a little slower Daddy”

     

    “Walk a little slower, Daddy!” said a little child so small.

    “I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.

     

    Sometimes your steps are very fast; sometimes they’re hard to see;

    So walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me.

     

    Someday when I’m all grown up, you’re what I want to be.
