Euphorbia


Forget about roses, dahlias, mums, sunflowers and orchids. Lets welcome the arrival of the most popular flower (well, in my side of town, of course) – the euphorbias. I know most of you are familiar with this flower, you can see it everywhere nowadays. Be it in the community, market, gardens, beaches and any other place where it can possibly grow. My mother adores these flowers very much. Our garden as well as our roof is filled with every kind of euphorbias. Actually, I don’t get its popularity – my neighbors (my godmother included) are passionate about them. I thought, you can’t even give it as a gift to the lady you love unless she would accept flowers in pot; it’s not even a good idea to imagine. LOL.

One time, my mother forced me to take photos of these small flowers. And to avoid further arguments, I submitted to her request and went immediately to our roof. Well, not only our roof has these buds, it’s the whole neighborhood. A typical provincial scene, right? As I begin taking pictures, I realized that they are not that bad after all. I must admit they are beautiful if you’ll just look closely.

I showed the photos to my mother and she bragged how right she was about euphorbias – they are delicately gorgeous. Well, I told her that she’s lucky I can take photos of her beloved gems so she can actually see them. Once my brother brought those pots on the roof, my mother won’t see them again. She’s too afraid to climb.

  3. Oh really? Thanks for telling me.. I'm not really a "blogger" so I just use Microsoft LiveSpace. Didn't know its memory is limited. Darn. :)

    Yes I've been to Kamakura and Hakone. Japan is really a wonderful place. It's one of my most unforgettable moments in my life. :) Are you from Japan?
