Poinsettia Plant Taller Than Me

Ryukyu Mike dwarfed by a poinsettia

It May Not Be Full Grown


Poinsettia plants can be shrubs or trees, according to the botanical experts.

Yesterday, I was up north, checking on the progress of plum and cherry blossoms.

Both, the sakura and plum blossoms, looked kinda iffy but, this tree impressed me, alright.

So, I handed the professor my camera and, asked him to shoot me. And, that's what he did.

When I was younger, I was almost 6 feet tall; I may have shrunk some, over the years.

That red thing, at the end of my paw must be, over 7 feet above the ground.

Some people, think the red things are flowers but, they ain't. They're just red leaves.

And, the Wiki dudes say, the flowers are "unassuming." Whatever that means.



Unassuming 


For the heck of it, I went to the Thesaurus folks and, checked for y'all.  I like them.

Humble, meek, modest, unobtrusive or, unpretentious, would have worked.

Unassuming, unassuming, unassuming. Who wants to be called that ?

Now, I don't speak very eloquently but, I can be eloquentlier than that !

If, you have any of these plants, leftover from Christmas, do me a favor.

Don't talk to plants, that way and, take good care of them.  Alright ?
