I bought this flower about 2 weeks ago from a friend I met who is a wedding floral designer. It’s been sitting next to my bed and is always the first thing I see when I wake up. I’ve never been all that great with plants but have lately been inheriting more of them, haha. This is one of my favorite flowers because of the bold colors and the tropical look. It’s really been fun to see the progression of it blooming. I decided to document it, knowing that there was a possibility that it would bloom on or near Christmas. I thought it would be a good representation of what Christmas is all about; coming into new life because of God’s gift of Jesus. I don’t want us to lose sight of why we celebrate Christmas and just how beautiful this gift of life is. So, Merry Christmas to all! Peace and love on this Christmas eve.
