fun foto challenge: ups and downs of outdoors

This week’s theme on the Fun Foto Challenge is all about Ups and Downs of Outdoors.

Vibrant color of red contributes to the festive mood during the holiday season. Lovely poinsettias line up the stairway which makes the outdoor activity center bursting with excitement and happiness. At first glance, they all look unreal because the color is so vivid but they are in fact real plants.

Everyone is welcome to join the challenge. Here is Cee’s blog to know more about the theme as well as to view other entries. There’s a different theme every week.  Hope you’ll all join the fun and post your entries too.

Happy Friday!

poinsettia is the color of the holiday season

Photos i’ve taken of poinsettias decorating the malls.  I love the bright red flowers so apt during the Christmas season.  It is the most popular flower adornment in December.

Rows of bright red colored poinsettias are a sight to behold.  It always gives that happy and festive mood .

At one glance, it may look like plastic flowers but these are all real.  I couldn’t help but take photos of them.

I love the idea of arranging and planting these poinsettias in cluster in large flower pots.
