Poinsettia- this plant, a native of Mexico and Central America, is very enticing, most of all it signifies something in the air, when their color change to flaming red, cream, pink, white or marbled, it is Christmas!
What is the association of this beautiful plant to Christmas? Well, the tale has it that a very poor young girl, unable to afford any gift for the celebration of baby Jesus Christ’s birthday, pulled some weeds on the roadside and placed these in the altar, the next day, crimson blossoms sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_pulcherrima.
I have 5 large pots of poinsettias, I felt sad that they died in the harsh Winter, I took care of them so well in the Spring until Fall, I saw a leaf started to turn red, but one day temperature plummeted to below freezing and they wilted, dried and died, and so was my few bucks too. So, when Fall was rolling from the horizon, and a little of hues are appearing, I thought of my poinsettias again, but buying them means throwing away money,why don’t I crochet them? and arrange into perfect and wonderful floral arrangement? Yeah! so, off my hook went a milling!
