I don't know what this plant is called, it's doing fine and todat I noticed its tiny, white flowers almost blanketed by the lush green leaves. Another variety that's been growing here for the past5/6 years. The pretty white flower bloomed today and suddenly I felt that the plant isn't as wild-looking as I'd assumed it to be! A tinge of red and the blooms start to arrive on this euphorbia. With more of green than any splash of colour in my yard, this is very, very welcome! In India, this must be the most-planted bougainvillea! When the colour comes, it's orange but the veins on the bracts show its future--magenta!
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
The first flowering shrub I planted on our land
Every flower is a soul blooming in Nature.-Gerard De Nerval
Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? -Henry David Thoreau
