Australian Memories – Poinsettias


When we were visiting my brother’s family in Australia we saw poinsettias growing in people’s yards some.  This bush was a well cared for double flowered version at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt. Coot-tha.  I really liked it!

Psalms 104:24  O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

This one is to show how big the bush was!


  1. Those are beautiful, Mary!! They're such a bright red and I love the double version...they're so full! I've never seen or heard of double poinsettias before. Thank you for sharing your pictures! :-)
    Hope you've had a good week. It's really cold here - supposed to be in the teens and single digits at night over the weekend. Yikes!!

    1. I'm glad you liked them! I don't think I'd ever heard of doubles either. They were beautiful. :-)

      It's been a hard week, actually. I'm glad it's over and hope next week will be better. Thank the Lord, I've felt better today for the most part. We are supposed to be in the 30s here tonight, which is pretty cold considering this week we've been up to the 80s during the day at least once!

  2. Love the brilliant red colour!! :)
