Almost A Half Million Poinsettias!

This invite popped up on my FaceBook page and sounded like a lot of fun.  I enjoy tours and seeing how things are done.

We were greeted by building after building of greenhouses as we drove in.

We were guided to a parking spot and entered a large greenhouse set up for the occasion.  The family who owns it is Dutch and we were invited to share hospitality that included a selection of Dutch cookies and candies.

They had an area set up as a photo booth.  They took the picture and one could retrieve it from their FaceBook page.

Look at all of those poinsettias.  There are 23 ACRES of poinsettias growing in greenhouses!

They grew 450,000 plants.  Each and every pot is individually watered.

There must have been 100 pallets of every sort of pot you could possibly imagine.

A few close-ups:

Amazing, aren't they?

They had a viewers choice contest to see which variety would be added to their collection  for 2018.

So, which one would you pick?

My choice.

Himself's choice.

Mine came in first and his was second!

As you left, each visitor was given a little poinsettia to take home.  A very nice gift.
