Thank you, Mitch, for all the great information and photos of holiday plants and flowers. I hadn't ever seen them all listed together in one place. Now I can spout off in an informed fashion when someone mentions holiday decorations. . . making sure to refer back to your article to get my facts right!
Makes me want to set up a special shelf with an example of each!
Mitch, just now got a chance to read this lovely article...what great plants and fantastic history. It's the history and myth that make it all the more interesting, don't you think? Thanks for bringing this all to the attention it deserves.
