I brought home some poinsettia plants over Thanksgiving weekend to brighten up the house for holidays.
When I was watering them before placing them in the living room, I noticed these guys on the leaves. They were smaller than by pinky fingernail. I carefully removed them and put them outside on a bush, but not before grabbing my camera and taking pictures of them.
This is my view looking out the kitchen window. Our neighbor’s plant has gotten so big it is over the fence.

These do stay red through the spring.
Around our fence.
These are pretty in the fall.
Reflection of our neighbor’s boat. Taken from our dock and cropped up. The neighborhood osprey sleeps on top of this mast.
Down at the end of our channel. A Santa in someone’s backyard. I take a left in front of the Santa to get out to the bay.
Mangroves growing in our corner.
I threw last year’s poinsettia in the corner by the shed and it came back this year.
Hibiscus through our fence.
