    Ok Connie, we're waiting. What's the excuse? BTW, how do we know you're not Bruce?

    Hence the problem with using "common" names. Connie, in the absence of a pic, I suspect your plant is Euphorbia milii -- commonly called 'crown of thorns'

    I have a crown of thorns! Never seems to stop blooming.

    Ischel, thanks for the desert rose info. Most helpful.

    Still not Bruce.

    Cheers,

    YUP...the pic above looks like mine! And my excuse?? Well I've been chasing a little house fingerprinter around, going No...Uh Oh!!! It may take a month to clean the place back to normal. Oh and...now that she's moved...so did some of my furniture! So I've had shopping to do...and then there's...well, nevermind!! Sigh... Oh, and you can definitely tell I'm NOT Bruce. For one, his hair is WAY longer than mine....and there's the anatomical thing(s)...Well and HE has a GREENHOUSE, that should be raided someday (but that's another post from way back)....besides I have very brown eyes and unless he's wearing contacts...and he lives in the way cold frozen north. Nope...not Bruce.

    I know I've said this before, but one of the most endearing qualities of the people on this site is their amazing sense of humor. It's so refreshing to be able to post, without taking ourselves seriously all the time!!

    Now if only I were Bruce, I too would have a wonderful greenhouse to keep my babies in. But sadly, I'm just me!!

    Hey, does anyone remember that old commercial; Where's Waldo? Looks like we have our own version of Where's Bruce!! Maybe we could call it "Beyond Bruce?"
