Poinsettia redux

This weekend we went to the annual Poinsettia Open House at Homewood Nursery. DH and I attend this event most years. It's an stunning site -- entire greenhouses full of blooming poinsettias. Each year they host an open house on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. There is music and hot cider and tons and tons of poinsettias -- the nursery said that they have over 30,000 poinsettias. People can tour the greenhouse that has the National Poinsettia Cultivar Trials and vote on their favorites. It's incredible to see the variety of colors and shapes that these plants have been bred to take.

We ended up buying three different varieties for our house. It was hard to narrow it down!
