Ilocos, I must say is a euforbia-crazy province. Upon entering the province, you will notice that almost every house has a euforbia plant in the front yard. Our’s is not an exception. My sister even knows how many stems her varieteies have. The soil is special that she always bother me to get some from Calauan, Laguna. Everytime I go home, I always see to it that we go out on market days to scout for more varieties and I always end up spending more than what I have budgeted. Be that as it may, I have found joy in taking pictures of these flowers and they do not fail to amaze me everytime. Flowers have always been one of my favorite subjects because they emit a certain calmness to anyone who merely stares at them…For more of my sister’s collection, please check out my “flickr” window above.
