Lol - I love the cat among all these blooming trees - a romantic sight.

By the way, E is next, no, it is G - chuckling.

Dan, cyclamen are I think one of the most beautiful flowers!

A Bhutanese aphrodisiac?
Marianne HegeMarie Feb 1, 2016
I was wondering if you were looking for more information about cultivating this Himalayan plant (besides Bhutan, they mention Tibet and south west China): http://www.seedaholic.com/euphorbia-griffithii.html

There is not much information over more generalised sources:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_griffithii

There are many different species of the genus Euphorbia, like the popular poinsettia, for instance, or:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poinsettia

the "Christ thorn"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_milii

Thank you for those links. It could be fun to give this one a try..
Marianne HegeMarie Feb 2, 2016
You're very welcome - it is an interesting, very diverse family of plants, we have (in Europe), for instance, the green spurge, Euphorbia esula - yes, it is the same genus: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_esula

Heather


Marianne Jan 18, 2016
I like the name Heather, which always reminded me of romantic moorlands. By the way, a friend here will certainly appreciate your choice; it is the national flower of Norway!
HegeMarie Feb 1, 2016
I didn't see this until now. Beautiful :-)
Marianne Feb 2, 2016
Thank you!

And their berries are quite interesting too - lol - for instance to spice certain dishes, or for Ginger and similar beverages.
