Christmas Flowers!

I surprised my Mom with this huge poinsettia plant last Friday. I bought it and left it inside her home for her to find when she got home from work. It made her very happy!

So yesterday I was taking photos of it, and got close to the center. There’s a lot going on there!

She is growing her amaryllis again this year, and this is the first one to blossom:

And again I got close to the center, and was happy to see how intricate this is, too!
