Succulents: Jade Plant Has Fresh Flower Buds!

How truly lovely! It’s one of the prettiest developments in my backyard garden during the autumn. I came home about 30  minutes ago and just gave it a light watering. I really love how the reddish edges as they contrast with the pale green. By  December, tiny white flowers dot my jade plant, as if they were snowflakes!

IMG_3124I’ve had this plant for several years now. It started its early years in a stone container in my bathroom.  It has grown at least quadruple its original size since I transplanted it into the ground. Loveliness as sweet as this cannot be contained, nor should it be!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  Ingestion of the sap of the jade plant may cause illness and skin contact with the sap may also cause dermatitis. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
