Longer Day

This morning I went to the Friends of the Botanic Gardens plant sale, (where I purchased another couple of vireyas) and then visited Guilfoyle's volcano. There's a picture of the volcano on the Friends page. These tiny flowers (they're each less than 1cm across) are planted at the volcano.

The plant is Euphorbia flanaganii, or Medusa Head.

After I got home I tried my walking foot again and it worked fine! So I did some quilting. I also sprayed a bit of soapy water on my roses as there were a few aphids beginning to appear.

Such a busy day—all because of that extra hour of daylight!


  1. Great photo - not a name I'd have thought of for this impressive little flower, which I don't think I've ever seen...

  2. such strange little green hands...k.

  3. Aren't they strange? The common name comes from the overall shape of the plant, not the flower. If you do an internet search for images of the plant, you will see why. I didn't take a picture of the whole plant, sorry, I was too taken with the flowers.
