Sharon Mau replied:

. . ╰⊰✿ . . 'ae . . me too . . thank you so much Nina . . I can imagine how beautiful Christmas in Norway is having lived in Germany several years and enjoying Christkindlmarkt am Marienplatz each year in Munich http://www.muenchen.de/rathaus/Stadtverwaltung/Referat-fuer-Arbeit-und-Wirtschaft/Tourismusamt/Veranstaltungen/Christkindlmarkt.html which is where I lived while in Europe . . . with fresh snow and the holiday atmosphere of twinkling lights, with enormous very beautiful christmas tree about 70 or 80 feet high and music by violinists, cello and other instruments, a magical atmosphere and the sweet smell many treats like kletznbrot, glühwein which means "glow wine" in German . . a very good Wine, Brandy, Lemon, Cardamon, Cinnamon Cloves, Lemon, Bay Leaf . . . with Nürnberger Lebkuchen . . http://www.lebkuchen.nuernberg.de/ it is so good and I miss it sometimes . . haven't had it in so long . . so this is what Poinsettia remind me of . . Glühwein is reminiscent of European Christmas . . here is a link for a wonderful website with good recipes . . viewers could use google translate if they don't understand the language http://www.chefkoch.de/rs/s0/gl%FChwein/Rezepte.html . . and you see the large image at the top of this webpage is Marienplatz in Munich . . I really miss the culture sometimes . it is so beautiful http://www.bavaria.by/christmas-market-in-munich-bavaria Here on Maui in our tropical climate Poinsettia grow like trees . . we also have them in white and a soft pink colour . it seems they occur in other colours as well . often you will see entire streets lined with Poinsettia shrubs . . I call them a living wall . . they provide a beautiful privacy screen as an ornamental and at this time of year November when we have more rain and cooler temperatures at night upcountry and more darkness as the sun sets earlier in the day the Hibiscus trees begin with this beautiful display as the bracts change colours . . . ✿⊱╮. . . ♥ . .

A beauty its is, radiant color too.

. . ╰⊰✿ . . thank you so much Tracy . . the blooms are about eye level . . a beautiful Hibiscus bush upcountry . . so happy you enjoy it . . ✿⊱╮. . . ♥ . .

Love the quote, your photography, and of course the flower. Wish they grew in Reno, other than on my kitchen table at Easter..

Sharon Mau replied:

. ╰⊰✿ . . thank you so much Evelina . . they are quite a display all over the island right now . . and the light yesterday was overcast . . perfect weather for photographing flora . I am happy you like it . . wish you could see the view behind this poinsettia . . amazingly enough the tree is growing near the edge of the road at about 3500 feet above sea level and you can ocean far down below on both sides of Maui . . Aloha . . ✿⊱╮. .

I drank that wine of which the soul is its vessel . . its ecstasy has stolen my intellect away . . A light came and kindled a flame in the depth of my soul. A light so radiant that the sun orbits around it like a butterfly - Rumi
