How Tall is Your Euphorbia? --- Day 2/312

Walk: Union Square after much appreciated rain
Distance: 1.5 miles

The English are known to be ruthless - discarding plants whenever it suits them.  Not ciwt.

Euphorbia survive my intense greenhouse window, and when they get too much like cactus, I can't bear to throw them out.  So I find little places for them to continue on.  Even Andy, the gardener, was amazed to see such big ones.  But he's in the plant saving business himself so there are all sorts of plants around the building being fluffed up, fertilized, coaxed ever onward.




"Why can't I go out in all that rain?"


"Yeh, why can't we?"


"Because if you stay inside for a few more years, you'll grow this big!"
