19 august 2018 • lesson learned: my euphorbia doesn’t want as much sun as most of my other succulents. after bringing it outside in the springtime, most of the leaves dried up and fell off, and it grew skinnier as it grew taller very quickly over the summer. about 3 weeks ago i put it in more shade—only a couple hours of direct sun. it’s now growing new leaves and filling out better. 😊✨ #succulent #euphorbia #succulentsunday

the first #wildlifewednesday i’ve been lucky enough to partake in. who’s this guy? a teeny tiny grasshopper baby? he stayed perched on my euphorbia for quite a while!

@lissoms Good picture. So far I’ve been very lucky this year and no grasshoppers. I’ve had years they have destroyed my entire garden. It’s been a very cold wet spring so might not get many this year. Cool picture.

what happened to the leaves? do they just fall off naturally?
