Like a Flower: Flower of the Day, Nov 17 2016


Back when I lived in a place where flowers didn’t bloom year round, I always felt that my succulents were a flower of sorts.  This jade plant blooms like a flower rising above the falling foliage of its pot companion.

You saw these earlier before the buds burst open.  Beautiful then, beautiful now.

Time was when I would have cropped this picture, but given permission by Cee’s “rule of 2/3,” I have left the wall above––mainly because I’m intrigued by the quality of light and shadow there. I love the contrast to the very busy  crown of thorns and succulent in the foreground.  I always know what I like but don’t always know why.  Thanks, Cee, for giving a name to this one!!

Succulent Potential


The beginnings of flowers are often even more spectacular than the finished product.  I love this starburst effect on one of my most prolific succulent plants.
