Euphorbia

This is the time of year to enjoy Euphorbia at it’s best.

And it looks extra special with all this gorgeous sunshine filtering through it.

When it puts out new growth it’s a lovely lime green colour.

I thought it would die quickly so I kept the composition simple, but days later and it’s still quite happy in a vase.
