Finding the Right Spot

We have a lovely little crown of thorns, Euphorbia milii, growing in a pot.

Being in a pot, it has been easy to move around. Perhaps a little too easy.

First we had it on one garden table and then another.

The problem is that it is a bit spiky and the sap is also poisonous, so we can’t put it just anywhere. Plus, it doesn’t seem to go with anything else we have growing.

For a few weeks it sat under the lemon tree. The poor thing must think we are playing hide and seek with it.

For now it is on the patio. Hopefully we will leave it in one place for awhile.

Have you ever had a plant that you couldn’t find the right spot for?
