Pink Poinsettia - February 2020©2020 Carolyn A Pappas, Pink Poinsettia - February 2020. Graphite, watercolor and ink. Collage on 5 x 7 inch greeting card.
I took a photo of this poinsettia at the end of February at Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory in Deerfield, MA. I almost didn’t go that day, but I remember thinking to myself that it might be one of the last opportunities I had to get out of the house with Cate. I was following the coronavirus story in the news and I was anticipating that life was going to drastically change. I am so glad that I decided to visit, and I got to see a lot of interesting butterflies that day. Interestingly, after I made this card, I realized that I was spelling and pronouncing “poinsettia” wrong all these years by adding an extra T.
