EUPHORBIA SPECIES

As it is not much fun to be out in the garden at the moment I’ll show you one of my favorite indoor plants. We do have blooms in the garden but it is wet and windy and cold at the moment.

This  one is a member of the huge EUPHORBIA family, some come with leafs, others with spines and some even have both leafs and spines. I am the proud owner of several euphorbia spieces, in my home and in my garden . They all get tiny yellow flowers. And they bloom for a long time.

I hope you are all ok and having fun. Take care and thanks for visiting.

WITH RAINDROPS

Plants and flowers are so much prettier with raindrops I think. We had a bit of rain last night and this morning I saw how pretty it was so I took a few pictures for you.

DAHLIA’S, ALWAYS PRETTY BUT JUST THAT BIT MORE WITH THE RAINDROPS ON

Have a great week !!

YELLOW FLOWERS

Those who know me already know that I love the combination of blue and yellow, the blue calms me down, the yellow looks like the sun is shining, even on a rainy day. Today was another rainy day so no work in the garden.

Oldies

More oldies today, it was a cold and a very  very wet Monday, a day to spent in bed with hot tea and a good book, alas duty called…

It was a day to dream about vacation in a warmer climat.

These are oldies from Arizona where we had a lovely vaction a few years ago.

MY NEWEST LOVE

When we were on vacation in the South of France we visited a few garden centers as that is something I really enjoy. And I found something I had been looking for for years.

OPUNTIA FICUS INDICA BURBANK SPINELESS

That is quite a mouthfull isn’ it ?! Some of you will think this is quite a common cactus and it is but for me he is special as he has no spines so the kids and the dogs can’t hurt themselves when they come too close to it. And they are usually sold as big plants as they can grow rather big, I never came accross one with just one leaf, as we have to take it home with us in the car. The dogs took a lot of space as they were travelling in a big bench. And I like small cacti and see how they grow.
