POINSETTIAS ET CETERA

LIQUIDAMBAR TREE
GOLDEN GATE AVENUE
These are some shots I took the other morning as I walked through my 'hood of Silver Lake, California.

When I first moved to L.A., I believed poinsettias only grew in ten-inch plastic pots wrapped in red or gold tinfoil. No indeedy! They are an actual tree which you tend to see growing in old-fashioned yards in and about the Southland. As you can see, they are beautiful, and to confine them to a tiny pot veers toward sacrilege.
