The Westin Poinsett hotel had a display of a variety Ponsettia flowers for the Christmas season.

Joel Poinsett introduced the Poinsettia to the United States from Mexico during his service as the first American Minister to Mexico. Fortunately it has remained a beautiful greenhouse flower instead of becoming the first invasive “Kudzu style” species.

A purple car cruisin on Main Street in downtown Greenville. This photo was taken by Denton Harryman

I was one of numerious people (six which I noticed) who took a photo as this car cruised down Main Street. I should have shared a photo of the photographers (smile). Actually I like the color in this photo but mostly I like the wheels. As a side note I understand that crusing is not legal so I assume this person was headed to a distination and not driving up and down Main Street as I did so many years ago. Personally, I think that the car and the photo have an American Graffiti feel to it.
