Poinsettia

Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima).









The story behind this is quite funny...my Dad came home with this plant one day last week.  Someone at his work had asked him several weeks prior if he'd like to buy a Poinsettia and the proceeds would go towards charity.  He had no idea that this plant was called Poinsettia (he'd of course seen them before, but never thought to find out the name...lol...) Anyway, all he heard was something for charity...so he gave the person some money.   And fast forward a couple weeks, he sees this on his desk...and he was wondering how come it was there.  He hadn't realized that he had paid for it.  Anyway, isn't if funny how guys never care about flowers as much as women do....
