E is for Euphorbia

When I was thinking about an "E" word that fits my theme of gardening for the A to Z challenge, Euphorbia popped into my head. And in my half-asleepedness at that! Not an obvious choice considering it's not phonetic with the silent "E" (and the word phonetic isn't phonetic!). My friend mentioned Euphorbia recently so that has to be why.

Up close and personal

I had poor sick little Desi take pictures of me next to the Euphorbia. Don't worry, I didn't drag him out specifically to do it. I dragged him out to pick up Augie from school. My gut decided to take the spotlight in the pictures and I couldn't be shown up like that. So, no pic of me. Don't worry, I haven't changed the main theme of my blog. I just get sidetracked with challenges.

Linking to Welcome Wednesday and What's on Your Mind Wednesday (button on sidebar). I will probably link to Jewelscapes and Cute & Little tomorrow. Playing catch up!

  3. I bought my first plants of the season today. I of course rescued some sad little things off the clearance rack at Lowes. :) I'm having fun reading your A-Zs!!

  6. Oh Jen, you are so funny. You always crack me up. I wish I had a green thumb, but I somehow manage to kill every plant that steps into my house.
