Too Soon For Poinsettias!


Today, my wife and I decided to visit a local garden center to browse through the latest offerings for the upcoming Christmas Season. As usual, there was a sea of Poinsettias everywhere you looked. But after a few minutes there, I found myself at the very back corner of the greenhouse, and there quietly blooming away was this lovely orchid. It was backlit beautifully, and I couldn't help but ask permission of the clerk to photograph it. Christmas offerings will appear when I finally get in the spirit, and I always feel that we are pushed into the season by commercialism before most of us are in the mood to do so. So I am rebelling by refusing to shoot Christmas scenes and items just yet.
