Testicular Euphorbia

That’s what the latin name of this plant should be. I’ve never had a good close look at it before, just admired it’s prettiness from afar. But upon close inspection with the macro function on the camera I was shocked to find it sporting a rather manly set of gonads!

More pictures of my favourite flowers in the garden on my Flickr – just click the image in this post.

    I figured that a 12 year old would come up with a name like that but no, it’s a 35 year old grown woman who did. I do wonder though if one little seed pocket descends more than the other one 🙂
