Gorgeous Winter Day Succulent Photos
If it wasn't for the lack of rain this endless string of gorgeous days would be complete delight.
Aloe marlothii produced an especially spectacular candelabra this year. The warblers and orioles are rapidly stripping the flowers, but that's fine--good food for them.
Senecio rowleyanus. The common name is String Of Pearls, but which blogger called it String Of Peas? That seems far more appropriate.
The Russellia, another draping plant, burst into bloom again after a brief winter rest. All that warm weather woke it up.
'Joe Hoak' flowers are opening. Heaven for bees.
Many Agaves blooming or nearly finished. I should plant some of the seeds from the 'Blue Glow' pods--the seeds I planted in the past produced Agaves that look near-identical to 'Blue Glow'.
A Sempervivum in bloom, seen at a local nursery. This plant doesn't like our long hot summers. It's an alpine, not a desert succulent. Beautiful flowers:
At the same nursery (the rest of the photos in this post are from there), Senna artemisiodes:
Plumeria silhouette. It's been such a warm winter many Plumeria have held their foliage. This one is even blooming.
A waterwall of black volcanic stone; Acacia 'Cousin Itt' in a concrete pot.Happy succulents.
Happily blooming on a gorgeous Winter day.
