Right on Point! (iPhriday Flower)

Except there’s no “T” is there? Who knew? After a lifetime of hearing and pronouncing it as POINTsettia, it’s only now I learn it’s not. What a shocker to learn differently. Dang!


Learning that I’ve been mispronouncing it forever is almost as funny as the way Master Fifteen cringed with complete and utter embarrassment as I took this photo at the grocery store on the weekend. Good to know I’ve still got it, lol!😂

  1. Oddly until I moved to California 6 years ago I thought it was pronounced poin-set-a rather than poin-set-E-a… apparently poinsettias in America are grown here in Encinitas, California (about 20 min north of where I live), they had a monopoly on the plant until the 1990s because they figured out a way to make it bushier than other growers. So when we moved to California everyone was pronouncing it differently and we decided to look it up in Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poinsettia)and found out that they are grown right here, so I guess they are pronouncing it correctly. Haha. 🙂
