Poinsettia Festival


If you are looking for the Vintage Card post for Vintage Thingie Thursday, click here.  For some reason the wrong link posted.   Sorry for the inconvenience. 


Today my DH and I visited the Poinsettia Festival in Phoenix.  This is the 27th Anniversary of the festival.  We began by a tour of the greenhouses where we saw all the various poinsettias.  This is only a small sample of all the ones we saw.

This display shows the many different poinsettias available for purchase in the sales tent. 

Here are two closeups of the many lovely poinsettias on display in the greenhouse and sales tent.
The Festival also included craft and food booths.  We enjoyed our tractor driven wagon ride to the greenhouse, even if we could have easily walked the distance.    Weather was beautiful in the high 70s.  It's a great time live in the desert. 
I am linking to How Sweet the Sound's Pink Saturday.

How neat! We just moved to CA from Phoenix and miss it terribly.

I never knew about that festival. I'm glad we did luminarias festival last year though.

Thanks for visiting me!
Happy Holidays,

Lina We too try to do the luminarias each year. It is one of my favorite holiday activities.

Hi Pam! I lost you over here at blog world! Drat that blogger! So slowly but surely I am catching everyone! This had to be a terrific day! Poinsetta's are lovely plants. They are so colorful and I always enjoy having one during the holidays. I hope your weekend will be truly wonderful.

After so many years of fed poinsettias, I love the peach kind nowadays.

Those look lovely!

Poinsettias are beautiful but I am allergic to them! Wish I wasn't but I can enjoy them from a distance. Hope you took a few home.

Neat! I've never been to a POintsettia festival, nor have I ever heard of one! I'll bet it was a beautiful sight to see, especially this time of year. THanks so much for stopping by my Pink Saturday post...sorry I'm so late!

Hi Pam,
Hope you are doing well.
What a lovely array of Poinsettias!
Did you buy any?
The poinsettias I have in two large clay pots in front of my home are gorgeous now. I took a photo and have used it as my header on my blog. Please stop by and have a look at it and also at all the things I have created lately! Please leave a comment. :0

Beautiful! Sounds like a fun day. I saw poinsettias in the grocery store a week ago and now there are none. Should have grabbed one when I had the chance. We are having weather in the 70's today, too. Perfect! Have a good weekend, Tammy
