    I'm sure PFers have much more brilliant photos of beautiful flowers. :smile:

    Are those yours? So pretty. One of the many reason why I love spring :) Unfortunately, winter decided to stay another month here, so copying picture from photography thread.

    Although it is a huge and beautiful flower, I've heard it stinks. Really bad. Smells like rotten meat

    WHOOOAAA that flower is huge!!!! Man, everyone flower is unique. I've never seen those before.

    This is the only unique one I have. At least it's unique for me because I don't see it in the US.

    .. I think it's gonna be a good idea if we introduce the name of each flower... I don't know the name of this flower, yet. :biggrin:

    As soon as I know I'll post it.

    The flower is 'myrtle spurge', a noxious weed that is mildly toxic and irritating.

    States like Colorado, Utah and Oregon are trying to eliminate it.

    http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellit...Layout&cid=1251621066515&pagename=CBONWrapper

    "The plant is native to southeastern Europe and Asia Minor, from Italy east through the Balkans to the Crimea and Turkey." - Wikipedia

    "It was listed as a noxious weed in Salt Lake County, Utah in 2007, and since has been illegal for sale within the county." - Wikipedia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_myrsinites

    http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/code_enf/ord/MyrtleSpurge.htm

    "Myrtle spurge is not only dangerous to native plants and wildlife; it is dangerous to you and your family. The most common victims of myrtle spurge are children who unassumingly pick the pretty flowers. Myrtle spurge produces a toxic, milky latex which causes severe blister-like burns if it touches your skin. If it gets in your eyes, seek medical attention!" - City of Longmont, Co

    http://www.oregon.gov/ODA/PLANT/WEEDS/pages/profile_myrtlespurge.aspx

    Thanks to my wife who identified the plant.

    Thanks to you and your wife, Astro. Andre told me it's Euphorbia, I just forgot to update on it. Glad I didn't touch it, it looked weird with its poky thick leaves, beautiful nonetheless.

    Who loves gumamela and carnation? My mother loves both and every year on her birthday I present her a bouquet of these flowers with angel's breath.
