355/365

It will come as no surprise, I’m sure, that I’ve been really looking at the poinsettias this year. I am drawn, not to pure, flawless red but to mottled, bumpy, variegated leaves where red and green bleed into each other and expose the life of the plant in all its texture, veins, and flaws.

  1. I too have been loving my colorful and vibrant Poinsettia. Just looked at similar leaves yesterday as I was grooming it in the sunlight. Still interesting today.
