Christmas poinsettias have staying power through Epiphanytide!
Let the cheer of a Christmas poinsettia take you right through the season of Epiphany! Please take a plant for yourself or to someone who would enjoy some brightness through the gloom of January. But please consider making a free-will offering to help underwrite our annual Greening (and Poinsettia-ing) of the Church. Thanks so very much and enjoy!
