Euphorbia milli in red flowers


I had Euphorbia milli in a couple of my flower pots. Whether they are still there? I don’t know. In November last when I visited my home in Peshawar, many plants had disappeared. My tenent’s servant doesn’t bother to water them. The lady of the house is quite indifferent. Since I was there for a short time, I couldn’t do anything worthwhile. I tried to keep my heartache at bay.

It was a revelation when my late husband R (when he was alive) showed me one of my cactus plant bearing fruit. It tasted incredible. This plant is in our village home. Our watchman had transferred it to the ground near the carport. It bears its’ fruit in August. I could never had imagined the amazing taste of it.
