nature in the home

Joining Lou again and her 'nature in the home' series. This week Lou set us a green theme, foliage and flowers. When it comes to green nothing beats euphorbia, or spurges as it's often known, it's zingy green (not all species) flowers and foliage are a riot at this time of year. I absolutely adore it and am slowly filling the garden with as many different types as I can. Sorry Lou, I didn't manage to stick to green entirely and found myself adding a few splashes of colour here and there. 

[note - euphorbia has a nasty side too, it's an irritant and poisonous so always take care when handling and wear gloves]
