Barbara tells me: The poinsettia picture was taken by Carolyn Sullivan while we were out on a lovely day for lunch.
The poinsettia is a SHRUB in Hawaii! I guess they will not be blooming when I will be teaching at Quilting on the Beach 2015 in February. Oh well, there will be other wonderful flowers to see then.
