7 January - just a leaf

Every year I buy a Poinsettia plant... and every year it dies on me!
Thought I'd snap the leaf before it died! ;o)
Busy day today - kids back at school tomorrow, yippee! ;o)

Last year I was recovering!

1/125s f/4.0 at 60.0mm iso800 full exif

We have given up on poinsettias, but this leaf shows a lot of vitality. Great detail, well captured.

Don't keep it in your warm room too long...they are forced to flower due to lots of darkness so turn out your lights eat by candleight :>)
