Christmas Plant: Poinsettia

I was happy to have my family and my little boy back home after being away for 2 weeks. I decided to go with Poinsettia since it's the holidays and I added few things here and there for a nicer arrangment. These poinsettias thrive really good outdoors and you see many houses have them outside already nowadays. I've seen many other colors but the red is always a favorite!

Stargazer lily

I purchased those already in bud. It's a great addition to my container garden since the weather is very cool and perfect for thses lilies. The smell is very strong. I've tried growing those from bulb but I only get few buds.
