Poinsettias - Christmas flowers

These flowers originate in Mexico and make their appearance around Christmas here in Singapore every year usually as part of the festive decorations in shopping centres in town. These flowers with their cheerful red bracts were photographed in Fraser's Hill Resort. For the first time in my life I saw these flowers on small trees growing on the slopes of the Singapore House bungalow.It was pleasant to see trees instead of potted plants for a change.
The poinsettias are huge compared with those seen back home.
