That's awful :(


Oh no! I hate finding these things out, but I also don't want to unwittingly support something so antithetical to my very being!

Thanks for the heads up!


A friend sent me this link for an alternative source for poinsettias!



We're going to look into it and see if our local parishes want to support this instead of the Ecke ranch


Thanks for the info, very sad.


Here's another resource. We take our children here every year to take gorgeous photos with thousands of poinsettias!


Mary Ellen, I am late reading this post but am so grateful that you made us aware of this. How sad. I had no idea they supplied so many of our country's Christmas flowers.

Christmas Novena

  • Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen
