Euphorbius Minimus

I've no idea what this is - it didn't have a name plaquard!  It's an itty bitty little thing.

I think you're find it is a Pink Flowery Thing wink I'm hopeless with such botantical things.

It was really lovely to meet you at last on Sunday. It was great that you could time you visit to see your man with the gathering. smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Why yes - I'm quite sure that must be the common name! smile
So wonderful to meet you also Alan! I'm really happy we were able to combine the visits!

Reminds me of a peach blossom. Looking at the twig behind it, I think it could be apple.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh no - I see what you mean, but this thing is just a few centimeters across and was on a Euphorb of some kind. It may be similar to some euphorbs you have in S Africa.
Very pretty, Elizabeth smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Martin!

Traipse away Elizabeth, this is a delicate little beauty.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We're having a blast!
Thank you Mike - I love this little thing!
A lovely delicate bloom, Elizabeth. Hopefully someone will be able to identify it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Beverly! No one seems to know quite yet - I'll have to get out my books when I get home...
It is a lovely little flower thingy isn't it. If your now in Scotland then I hope you can traipse there as well as England smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is! We are now in Scotland and are just having a great time traipsing around!
Still a nice capture Elizabeth..love the softness treatment
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Ronky! I think the softness is actually lack of clarity! smile I took this with my old Minolta 35mm, which I didn't know how to work very well!
So pretty Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Richard!
