Perched Poinsettias

No other flower says 'Christmas' like the poinsettia.  These are perched in the lobby of city hall.   Those things that look like floating ice cubes in the background are part of a permanent art display ---  kinda cool, especially next to the poinsettias.   It seems like a wintery scene up north.   By the way, it's warming up quite nicely here.  High of 70 today.  But, another cold front is heading this way next week.  In the meantime, here's something to daydream about.

I really like poinsettias but they invariably die on me within the week. :-(

That ice cube thing in the background reminds me of something hanging in the lobby at Rockefeller Center in NYC. Except theirs isn't ice cubes, it's Swarovski crystals.
