Christmas is around the corner and for many of us mailing out Christmas Cards is still a Christmas tradition, and we received many Christmas Cards at work this year. I brought my camera to work on Friday hoping to capture a few of my favorite cards. The Peace on Earth card caught my attention, and so appropriate that this card came from a vendor from the other side of the world.
It’s heart warming to receive a card from one of our retired co-workers.
I love the whimsical look of this card, I think deep down inside we are still a kid at heart when it comes to the holidays season.

This year we received a beautiful Poinsettia plant from our web developer and I had to convince everyone at work that it belongs to me. It is not because I work the hardest, or work closely with these guys, but it is because I’m a gardener and I can extend its life after the Christmas season. We are closed next week for vacation so someone had to take it home on Friday.
Last year I took the Poinsettia plant home, and planted in my garden. I had to show proof to the ladies in the office, and luckily I posted my garden photos on Facebook. I signed up with Facebook several years back to post photos for the temple, I am Wat Greensboro’s photographer and post festive events photos on Wat Greensboro Facebook page. Surprisingly the image downloaded from Facebook is this sharp, and I shared most of the photos that I took with my sisters so a good collection of what I took are still there, but too bad they are not in high resolution. I guess It’s better than nothing.
These two images were taken on October 4, 2014. The poinsettia had gotten too big by the time I dug it up to take it inside, so it didn’t make it. I will have to plant it in a pot next year.
I planted the Poinsettia in May, the image below was taken in June and and I wrote a post on My Backyard Garden then. It didn’t look too good after Christmas and most people would have thrown it away.
I have to do some convincing, and my poinsettia made it home safely.
