I've had some succulent plants on my balcony for several years now - they have a pleasing, cabbagy look to them, and they live through anything. They haven't changed much at all over these years, but they live, and I'm grateful to them for that :)
Anyway, a few weeks ago, I noticed that one of them had - how shall I say? Freaked out altogether. Check this out:
Do you see that? Right out of one of those cabbages, popped this huge, budding thing. What could be cooler? Anyway, the buds stayed there, unopened, for a couple of weeks, and finally started to open a few days ago:
I'm also fairly pleased with the fun shadow that it's provided :)
Anyway, here's one of the flowers, up close. Isn't it spectacular?
I'll post more as they open! Feel free, as always, to click on any of the photos, if you'd like to get a better look.
Meanwhile, check out this week's Shadow Shot Sunday, for fun shadowy photography, hosted by Hey Harriet. And check out Today's Flowers, for more flowery photos. Happy Sunday, everyone!
