This afternoon, unlike the weekend, is sunny but not actually all that warm. The weekend was icy cold with rain and wind and Monday morning I awoke to what looked like frost but was either frozen ice crystals or strangely transparent hail.
The first Euphorbia to open its inflorescence is E. rigida. I really don’t understand the name of this variety because of all the Euphorbias I’ve seen this one sprawls the most! But I like it for its strange habit and the colour it adds to the garden so early in the season.
In my post for GBBD (Garden bloggers Bloom day) it wasn’t showing the characteristic orange true flowers, now it is fully open and showing its cheerful colour to the world.
