Christmas Flower – The Poinsettia

poinsettia

According to a Mexican legend, one day near Christmas a child who was too poor to buy a present for the Christ child picked a bouquet of weeds from the side of the road. When the child reached the church, the plant blossomed in beautiful red and green flowers. Beginning in the 17th century, monks in Mexico included the plant in their Christmas celebrations.

SHS – Love and Kisses

It’s never too late for love and kisses! And with Valentine’s Day just over, it wasn’t hard to find some shots for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. The prompts this Sunday are: Candy, Pink or Red, Love, Kisses, and Smile.

Candy

IMG_5229-001 I found this box of candy pre-Christmas and just had to buy it – because I’ve never seen such a big box of candy before!  So it was sort of a gag gift from me to dear hubby.

The pix below is the box and card he gave me for Valentine’s Day (turned into a digital sketch).

I’m getting ready to sell a bunch of Pez candy dispensers on eBay – and what better smile than Woodstocks! (1234sunsign)
