Behold I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.. In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump... Corinthians 15: 51-52

Isn't it miraculous how the color of this poinsettia changes simply by using existing light and manual settings as compared to auto and flash that I used in the previous picture.

This plant is a gift that we are giving to our friend Florence, but we are waiting now until Monday which is closer to Christmas to give it to her. ...So in the meanwhile I did some experimenting using manual settings and existing light, while I should be doing my Christmas cards LOL ..I hope I don't wear the poor poinsettia out before we give it away...This is actually more true to the color of the plant than the previous picture which changed in the twinkling of a flash...

    This is absolutely lovely! I am still amazed by the color. The setting you chose to show off this plant is beautiful, and certainly full of Christmas cheer.
