Feliz Navidad from (me!) sandra, tvgp

ive been pronouncing this gorgeous flower's name wrong my entire life.   -with only 3 syllables,  poin-set-ta;  not 4.    but after hearing brian perrin and 3 additional horticulturists at alden lane say its name correctly

well, I decided not to be stubborn on this one because it sounds prettier said correctly: 


it is named after joel r. poinsett
 u.s. ambassador to mexico,   -back in the day
and credited/recognized for bringing this flower to the attention of botanists.

this makes me immediately want to say,

"thank you!"


~ feliz navidad 

In Jesus Birthday Celebration is almost here's name...    amen!
