Broken bits of a poinsettia donated by my neighbour:

  1. Donated dead or alive?

    • Sue

      Two branches had fallen off, so I received those in a glass of water….slowly the leaves have been drooping and falling off, but it remains striking….do you agree??

  2. Like a fallen phoenix! Striking indeed, Sue. I love the notion of neighbours providing you with decomposing plant-photo specimens. Was snapping some frosted windfall apples in the field the other day, and have to say I thought of you – in a good way of course 🙂

  3. Is that nine words, or do the small ones not count? Just a thought.
    Nice to see more decay on your blog, Sue. You do it so well. Honestly.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. It resembles the tattered remnants of a red velvet dress. It is stunning against the black background.

  5. Amy

    Sure is… 🙂 Beautiful capture, Sue!

  6. The color, still intense. Gotta think this is an apt metaphor for some of us, for me, any way. :0\

  7. You can make even the fallen and wilting look gorgeous.

  8. “Past it’s best but …” – oh, could that be me and all my demographic? A perfect shot of difficult red, with beautifully placed petal fall. Actually a neighbour who gave you decay would really be giving you a gift that says “I know you.”

  9. I’m not a fan of poinsettias either, but the colour is fab and i wonder how it will fade.

  10. Aw, bless! 🙂 It’s lovely, Sue! Happy Sunday 🙂

  11. I love this commenty ‘conversation,’ if I may call it that. Perfect example of “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” I love the different perspectives presented! As far as the wilting poinsettia and Sue, I absolutely love the connection you made even if the post was DWI😉

  12. Sticking red against the black!

  13. That is what a poinsettia in my house would look like. Strike that. It wouldn’t be nearly so beautiful. 😀

  14. I have found that most things are stunning when bast their best. Or maybe it’s just me getting older…

  15. Love this one Sue – my favorite part of the composition is the leaves on the table next to the vase. Striking shot.

  16. I think the photo is stunning!

  17. This is almost like a Christmas dying… was the Grinch involved?

  18. Possibly all leaves dropped by now Sue …. and whether we like them or not , they ARE a striking *Christmas plants . Very nicely composed ! Also love the embroidered cloth …

  19. I was going to ask the same thing Jude asked in her first question. FYI, I wouldn’t have binned them either. Your photo is striking! I love the rich red tone.

  20. Strikingly beautiful, the red against the black, falling leaves around the vase, this is stunning. I am so sorry I have missed so many of your beautiful photos Sue…I will try do better next year. Always a pleaure to visit you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and see you soon! 🙂

Over to you...
