Another Difference of Opinion

After working as a florist for many years I love the other colors of poinsettias - pinks, peppermints, especially the whites.  These short ones, just the right size for a coffee table, were so cute I picked this one out.  After I got it home I felt bad because Leonard likes red ones - poinsettias should be red.  They were $5.97 so I went back and got a red one for him for the center of the table.  Now we're both happy and it didn't cost a lot.  Our house is slowly, very slowly, getting some Christmas touches.   Diane

HI Diane, I saw a gorgeous white Poinsettia today when I was at the doctor's office.. It was so pretty... However, I'm more like Leonard. I'll choose the reds first... But--I like them ALL.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hello Diane, Can I admit? I don't like ponsettias at all! Although your pale one does look lovely in the photo. Jane x

So jealous I priced the yesterday at Fred Meyer and they are over $20...so I left without one only because I tend to kill them!
