Poinsettias at the nursery.


One of the best parts of my job is being able to visit the large commercial greenhouses, and one of the sights I look most forward to is the one presented to me by thousands of fresh poinsettias in the mid stages of showing their vibrant colors.

Yesterday (11/17/09) I went to Tommy Loder’s greenhouses in Centre, Alabama.  I had my camera with me because I knew what I would see, and I knew I would want to share the sight. 

Thousands of plants almost ready for Christmas

Keep up with johntheplantman’s blog and in a couple of weeks I will tell you just how to care for your Christmas poinsettias so that you will get the most out of them.

As usual, I would just love for you click here to go to Amazon and purchase the ebook edition of my wonderful book, Requiem for a Redneck to go on your Kindle. I have also noticed that Amazon now has a free Kindle app for iphones and tablets. Is that cool or what?

Enjoy the photos.
