For Cee’s FOTD
These are some sort of succulent. Not sure of the name.
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.
Succulents in Full Bloom
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!!
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.
