Thanks to Jientje from Heaven is in Belgium I was able to identify this flower. The name is Euphorbia Milii /Crown-of-thorns or Christ plant/.
Thanks to Prospero from Serendipitous Garden we identified this green sticks 🙂 Turned out it is another Euphorbia – this one is Tirucalli /Pencil Cactus/. Thank you to my blogging friends!

    Beautiful roses, well protected by the thorns.
    Reminds me of a German song by Goethe, “Das Heidenröslein.”

    Such pretty red blossoms! The thorns looks sharp though!

  3. Leora Says:

    That is very prickly! I won’t be touching, OK? Pretty red for Ruby Tuesday.

  4. Ralph Says:

    Thorns…they seem to exist to prevent anyone from picking the lovely flower. A possessive thorny trap. The thorns – ugly. The flower, a true beauty! Excellent capture!

    My Ruby Tuesday

    Among the sharp thorns
    tantalizing flowers bloom—

  14. Jientje Says:

    My parents used to have one ( or more ) of those when I was a child. They called it “Jesusthorne”. They said that the crown Jesus had to wear when he was to be crucified was made out of them. I don’t know.

  15. Jientje Says:

    Euphorbia!!! Yes, correct. And now I remember the drops of white liquid, so typical for Euphorbia plants too!. Thanks for adding my name to this post!

    Hi Ellie.

    I think you have two Euphorbias in your pot. The other one is Euphorbia tirucalli or Pencil Cactus.
