Sandee said...

I've never seen a real plant in the ground. We can buy them during the holidays and they are in a pot. This is way cool.

Have a fabulous day Judy. ☺

alissa apel said...

That is sure a pretty plant! Ours do not get that big here.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Sandee! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Leovi said...

Janine Huldie said...

Beautiful plants and whenever I see them I know that Christmas time is indeed upon us! Happy Wednesday Judy!! :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

A sure sign that Christmas is near Janine!

Tammi @ My Organized Chaos said...

That is beautiful!
As a side note, I just arrived home from my visit to Negril {actually, going back tomorrow again with my daughter} - you live in such a gorgeous country. I fell in love with all the people that I met and the entire feel of the island. :)

FABBY'S LIVING said...

oh, we have this huge ponsettias around here too, although they're not called ponsettias perse, because the petals are too large and not close together like the American ones...anyway, I love them. I love your new pics of you and your twin. Thank you for hosting this fun party.
FABBY

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot FABBY! Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi Tammi,
Thank you so much. I am very happy you are enjoying your vacation in my homeland ,Jamaica. Continue to have a whale of a time.
Judy

kewkew said...

Wow, that is huge. Didn't know they could get so big!
Happy wordless Wednesday.

Judy Haughton-James said...

This one is really big kewkew.

Tony McGurk said...

Poinsettias are beautiful trees. Congrats on No Word Verification!!! I wish more Blogger users would follow your example as I have so much trouble reading those things

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

I had no idea a Poinsettia could grow that huge!
I can only imagine the loss you must feel missing your twin sister, dressing alike, hair worn alike, only a single difference I notice is that one of you was always smiling wider. I imagine there is a story to that. Loved ones are always with us living on in our hearts and so many little details of the day and season.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Tony! It is indeed very difficult to read some of the verification codes.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your kind comments Sukhmandir. It has not been an easy life without my twin. I truly appreciate your comments as they have certainly lifted my spirit. By the way, Janine was the one with the bright smile!:)

mail4rosey said...

Those are awesome!! I've never seen them so big. Are they a Christmas plant there? Just curious, they're THE Christmas plan there, but they never get big like that here. :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Rosey! Yes, this is actually a plant at my home. It is really very big. Some new ones were planted last week. I hope they will also do well. Many years ago we had many of these huge Poinsettias.

Danielle Royalegacy said...

Those poinsettias sure are huge! Did you just add a few more pictures of you and your sister on your header? I don't remember all of them from before. Whose who in the pics?

Judy Haughton-James said...

They are indeed huge Danielle! Yes,the header has new pictures. Janine was always the one with the bright smile.

Kristin Aquariann said...

Pretty! I've never seen them growing outside a pot.

Tammi @ My Organized Chaos said...

Now that I've visited and have grown so fond of Jamaica, I need to learn all I can!! What part of Jamaica are you in, Judy?

Stephanie said...

I've never seen them that big!!
(and I love the new header!)

Mary said...

Judy, I grew a peach poinsettia in my backyard in Florida. It got huge!

Where I live now in SC, we have roads and neighborhoods named after Joel Poinsett, the man who introduced the plant from Mexico to the US! He lived here and sent the plants to his home.

Have a great day!

Rebecca Uy said...

This is really beautiful for christmas decorations.. ;)

Have a fantastic week!

WW is up here

Cathy Kennedy said...

Wow, do you grow your own poinsettias? That would be so neat. I think they are such beautiful flowers. In fact, the hand-stamped Christmas card I made has a poinsettia on the front. Have a happy WW!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Warm greetings to you and your family Tammi! I live in the the north-eastern section of Jamaica. My parish is St. Mary and that is over 100 miles from where you are in Negril. One of my brothers used to work in Westmoreland so he knows Negril. I really need to go there someday. I am so happy that you and your family are enjoying your vacation here. Do continue to have good times.

Judy Haughton-James said...

They certainly brighten up the place for Christmas Rebecca.

Judy Haughton-James said...

They are perfect for Christmas Paula.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Kristin.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Kristine!

Party of 5 said...

That's a big one. I tend to kill plants, but I always love poinsettias in the holiday season.

Judy Haughton-James said...

This one is indeed huge OrangeHeroMama!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot for sharing the very interesting information about the man who introduced this flower in the U.S.A. Mary.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am here hoping that the new ones that were planted recently will do just as well Party of 5. Someone planted them for me.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thank you very much Stephanie!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Oh yes, we grow our own Poinsettias here at our home Cathy. There was a time when we had so many big ones. Now I hope that this will be the case in the future as we got some more planted recently.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot Maria. I just love to see the colour red at Christmas time. My December is going okay so far and I wish you, Steve and Piper a great month. Christmas is going to be so special for you all! Lots of Love, Friendship and Best wishes always.

TaMara Sloan said...

I love poinsettias! This is beautiful. Thanks for sharing at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.

Wandering Wren said...

Wow! That's a humongous Pointsettia! You could start a new trend, put some fairy lights on it, call it a modern christmas tree and you're set for the 25th!
Have a great week
Wren #259

Judy Haughton-James said...

Judy Haughton-James said...
