This certainly adds warm sunshine to any winter day! Rain is expected in my area tonight, but not before I snapped this photo of flower stalks blooming in one of my mother of pearl or ghost plants (also known as Graptopetalum paraguayense). This is a very striking and dramatic display – click on the photo to see the detailed image!
I was not aware of the flowering habit of this plant until recently. It certainly makes a very robust, beautiful succulent even more special.
In the upper right hand corner, dressed up in bright pink and yellow, is my lantana.
CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: Lantana is highly poisonous if it is ingested. I’ve gotten a rash after pruning it. Please take care with this plant. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
