Planting Fields

Today we went to to Planting Fields Arboretum.  During the Christmas season, they have a beautiful display in the greenhouse and Poinsettias are a major part of the exhibit.  I walked around looking at all the different colors of these plants, from those that were nearly white, to this stunning variegated version.  This one is called "Ice Punch" and it is just beautiful in person.  There is a strange pink color to the lighter parts of the leaf, but that is not the true color.  Our eyes see colors differently from what the sensor in the camera sees, and this is one of these examples.  It's still really pretty, though.

Looks as if someone painted white designs on the leaves. Very different. bsk

They look so shiny, they do not look real. Sounds like a fun day to extend the holidays.
