Poinsettia Reds by taffy

Poinsettia Reds

Word of the Day: Poinsettia.
Last night Jim and I hosted a dinner for 20 for our two classes of doc students to celebrate the end of the semester and get to do some cross-cohort bonding. I thought we were making a phone call to order pizza and salad. Jim instead spent the day cooking -- three lasagnas and roasted veggies! He also brought home 2 bouquets of lilies and this poinsettia to decorate the house. AND, he got rid of some boxes of his stuff that had been in our family room for over 5 years! YAY Jim!!
Photographed using 'sweet 16 manual settings' learned in an earlier challenge.

Very pretty, Taffy - you did a great job of capturing that deep red!

The angle of the light creates shadows that define the petals. Very pretty.

Love the deep, beautiful colors. How pretty! It sounds like lots of fun was had at the dinner. :)

Gorgeous reds in this! Red can be a really tricky colour to get right, but I'd say you got it spot on here!

I like the dark tones for this shot - go well with the rich reds of this flower!

Oh your husbands sounds great, you are lucky to have such capable and helpful husband! Oh I love the deep red tone in this, I can´t ven bring any of these home cos they´re sort of poisoneus and my cat sure likes to eat plants and flowers.

Crikey, steady on Jim, you're letting the side down rather there!! I confess, yesterday I cooked Rebecca her tea, and I have bought her a Pinsettia this week and sorted out a box of old camera stuff given to me!! Lovely shot BTW Taffy.

Poinsettia, I type way too fast and rarely check my spelling. Life is too short!!

This is beautiful! It sounds like a very nice evening!

why o why do wesay .. just a poinsettia when they are so lovely,
Apparently they grow about 6ft in the wild which must be a fantastic sight.

Very pretty! Can Jim give Jeff some lessons?

@susale I am pretty lucky to have Jim in my life, and without any cats, we can have pretty much anything around the house.

@seanoneill I just read Jim your comment and he loved it! Thought he first had to sort out that 'cooking tea' meant cooking dinner (we had a laugh at the though of cooking tea as in boiling water!).
December 14th, 2013  
@taffy yes, I can see where the confusion lies. If only we lived closer, then you'd know that Rebecca doesn't drink tea:-)
