"The Poinsettia Guy"

Photo of a jolly old "guy" sitting amongst some poinsettia plants.

Today's picture features a little twist on the age-old Christmas custom of decorating with Poinsettias. Reds, greens and blues galore...this photo is just bursting at the seams with the traditional colors of the season. Here are a few words from photographer Robert Schwarztrauber about the image:
    "Here is one more photo from the wonderful Buffalo Botanical
    . This was one of many seasonal displays assembled
    throughout the grounds. I just could not help but smile when I
    saw this old guy perched among his poinsettia plants. Proud as
    if he grew them all himself."
        --Robert Schwarztrauber
