The poinsettia wilts for me

The poinsettia

One of my clients gave me this poinsettia. I knew I should have taken a picture right away — after three weeks under my care, the poinsettia has lost some of its glow. It was an amazing plant when I first brought it home: the tallest poinsettia I’d ever seen, with brilliant red leaves hiding the stems.

I waited before taking a photo so I could include my client’s book — The Ivaldis Sail to America by Sybil Ann Ivaldi — with it. Next time I won’t wait.

This photo doesn’t do justice to either the plant or the book. The book, by the way, was a real challenge: 393 photos and 6 graphics, printed in full color throughout.
