I love euphorbia plants - these leaves are a deep purple but the flowers are lime green! Can't resist the colour combinations.  Suprised at the detail in the leaf print as the leaf itself looks quite flat on first glance ..

I'm feeling smug that I know what my plant is today. Mainly because I've grown them from seeds - this project could make a gardener of me yet. They remind me a bit of the dandelion leaf....

I'm a bit late with the print today - I've got the post degree show cold that's been doing the rounds. I've had these lovely cakes as medicine though :)


Thank you to my lovely 3rd years who gave me them - and the flowers and cards - I'm going to miss them (and not just because of the cake).
Today's print then....
