Pink and blue(ish) foliage on Kalanchoe luciae.
Pink stems and blue foliage (with pink tips) on Oscularia deltoides.
The same--pink stems and blue foliage (with pink tips) on a Lecadendron.
Stems not visible on this Dudleya, but again, blue foliage with pink tips. Seems to be a trend here this January.
Aloe 'Blue Elf'
All sorts of pink and blue in the garden, but the foliage wonder of this January are the local hills. They are a color we have not seen for several years because of the drought, a color far more amazing than pink and blue: green!
While in the garden, I got a bit better camera angle on Mrs. Hummer, while staying farther away. Note how her nest is placed: under the overhang of the balcony for some rain protection, but close enough to the edge so that sunlight can keep the eggs warm while she dashes off for nectar. Due to their frenetic metabolism, hummingbirds must feed at least once an hour.
