Seattle Day Trip: Molbak’s Annual Festival of Poinsettias

November 29, 2011

Molbak's tree made of poinsettias -- a great spot for holiday photos

 Molbak’s Nursery in Woodinville hosts an Annual Festival of Poinsettias, with over 25 varieties of these traditional holiday flowers.  It’s a lovely destination guaranteed to lift your spirits with color during the dark days of November and December.  I’ve already gone twice this year.

Here are just some of the poinsettia varieties I captured in photos and watercolors:
