Advent Calendar: December 13

Our neighbors across the back driveway have a really nice garden. During the summer, it's full of fruit trees and daffodils and in the winter their giant poinsettia really goes to town. The bush must be more than 12 feet high and about 20 feet wide. Impressive for a plant that was probably purchased at Safeway as a hostess gift. Paired with the bougainvillea on the other fence, it's quite a show.

I would love to see that.. I've never seen a poinsettia this big.

I miss the Bay Area and my garden. What a fantastic place for growing things.
