The March winds are the morning yawn."

Hi there - this plant is a type of Euphorbia (often called spurge) - although I can't tell you want sort. We used to have them outside of our house - but they are pollinated by flies, which is not a good welcome into the family home! Also, the sap can be an irritant to skin - so, if you need to get rid of the plant wear gloves!ReplyDelete
Nice picture by the way!
Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
How interesting Stewart!!! I've never heard of a plant that gets pollinated by flies!!! Too bad about the irritating sap...it's really quite attractive.ReplyDelete
I don't at the first though about euphorbia (now I see it), but it is very nice and a stunning photo.ReplyDelete
Little green bells :-)ReplyDelete
They do look like little green bells don't they!!!Delete
Lovely picture but it seems not to be a very friendly plant!ReplyDelete
A wonderful photo. So gentle and beautiful !ReplyDelete
I don´t know, what flower or plant it could be...
Best regards, Synnöve
THIS is awesome and I'm GREEN with envy.ReplyDelete
Don't feel bad Linda...we've still got snow on the ground all over too!!! This was in Monterey CA...2 weeks ago!!!Delete
I'd have to take Stewart's word for it!ReplyDelete
Euphorbia, and it spreads like wildfire.ReplyDelete
So don't pick any to take home :-oReplyDelete
Yeah...I don't think I'll be planting any of that!!!Delete
Whoa -- it is a beautiful plant, but it was quite interesting and informative to read the comments. I would never have thought that this wonderful green plant could be bad.ReplyDelete
To think that this was in a flower box in the courtyard of our hotel in Monterey...odd that they would tolerate swarms of flies there!!!Delete
I don't know either, but it is beautiful indeed. Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)ReplyDelete
Oh, this photo of this enchanting plant is so wonderful!!! Today I learned something new :) I never heard or saw this plant before...ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see someone knew the identity of this pretty little plant. Too bad it has so many bad qualities.ReplyDelete
I had no idea what this was either, love learning something new. And it's a pretty capture, despite the plant's cons.ReplyDelete
Till I read Stewart's comment, I had no idea what this may be. It has a rather surprising background it seems. And yet it is so delicate and pretty.ReplyDelete
I had no idea what it was! It's kind of pretty though. Your photo of it is very nice!ReplyDelete
What a beauty! Sorry that I can't help you with the name. Hope someone else can:)ReplyDelete
It is pretty!ReplyDelete
That's nice, love the colors! :)ReplyDelete
I managed to kill both my euphorias - but plant again I will! I like the rainbow versionReplyDelete
btw: you dropped me from FB and so I reapplied to be your friend. I'm pretty well behaved on FB, is there a reason? firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
