Flower Friday – Euphorbia Didieriodes

Last month at the New York botanic gardens I went to see the orchid display, when in fact these non-orchid photos turned out to be my favorites. In the dessert section was this beautiful plant native to Madagascar called Euphorbia didieriodes. The plant itself isn’t widely known, and I found little information on it, although other Euphorbias are common house/garden plants. I love these photos mainly because it surprised me that such delicate, cute little red flowers were poking out of a formidably thorny plant!

Happy weekend everyone!

      1. I know, it was for me too. I still don’t remember the things I learnt when I took a photography course! Some things just wont stick in my brain no matter how hard I try… I just let my macro lens do what it does (I can hear photographers gasping in horror at this comment)!
