Things I Don't Get...

Color me Out of It

But I don't "get"

Upside Down Christmas Trees...

...Why???





and I don't get Purple Poinsettias...okay, confession...I would have loved these Purple Poinsettias* when I was 13...but now they are a shock to the system...














I'll recover...

*photo of exotic purple poinsettias taken in Lowe's Garden Center...for all of you who would never confess to, but are going to, go buy yourself one [vbg]

and in case you want to ramp up the poinsettia level of excitement but aren't quite willing to commit to purple shiny paint to do so...
silver & gold glitter poinsettias :)

I think your comment reveals something - people who get too into the offbeat, often seem to be people who never quite grow up - that can be a good thing and that can be a bad thing...

I think you seem to have your child's heart in other places so I think you are okay!!

Well, my poinsettia confession of the year....I won't buy any live ones this year. I have tried for at least 15 years and never succeed in keeping them alive through the season. I compared prices with the live ones (which would soon look pitiful in my home as I systematically manage to make them die...I swear they drop leaves in the store as I walk by!)to the price of decent looking artificial (gasp) ones. But, rest assured...NO purple ones.

[grinning] it isn't really the colour purple that gave me palpitations...more the fact that the purple was spray-painted onto the poinsettias...

(well, and that is was shiny)

it's all about the journey...
