I am so delighted to have come across a very special type of poinsettia when I was in Clemmons a few weeks ago. I was picking up my paintings from the Annual Joe Cagle Memorial Juried Art Competition and stopped by the Clemmons Country Store on my way back. That's where I found this beautiful and very artistic looking poinsettia with the cultivar name of "Jingle Bells". I just love it!
