Since the last rain, our succulents and cacti have been putting on quite a show. It came as a bit of a surprise. I had no idea that “hen and chicks,” for example, already so-flower like with their rosette of leaves produced such bright pink stalks of flowers.
Not to be left out, a carpet of sedum blooming in yellow.
The cacti’s blooms are far more short lived. We get to see them primarily in Aron’s parents’ yard—they have an incredible collection.
But even our very tiny purple cactus seems to be crying out “look at me!”
They’re making up for all of our unhappy (failing) houseplants.
