Wow! I can't get over some of the wonderful pics we're getting for this comp. I thought I had better do the right thing and post an entry - just the Euphorbia shot you have all seen already! I certainly won't have any garden to photograph in a hurry when we move! :lol:

Pam, I love the soft lighting/focus on that one - it is really gorgeous! :)

I'm so glad you put this in, Pam - it looks great! :D :D Queensland snow - the poinsettia gives a beautiful contrast. Have you potted both of these up to take with you?

Ummm .......no! :oops:

Luzy, I took some cuttings of the 'snowflakes', and put them in water to get to them later that day. 3 weeks later they're still there, but mainly because I'm curious to see if they will root in water.

The poinsettias are still looking too good to cut, so I will do them just before the move.

I won't be missing them, Yani, because they're all coming with me.

I learned during the first drought that my garden (in NSW) went through(no water whatsoever), not to obsess about plants - when it boils down, they're only 'things', at least most of them are, anyway. Some of the plants have names, and some are irreplaceable, but life is too short to worry about things like that.

Having said that, I just wish there were 3 or 4 of me to get lots of propagating done!
