Fun fact (c/o Wikipedia): "Studies have shown Lyme disease is lower in areas where western fence lizards occur. When ticks carrying Lyme disease feed on these lizards' blood (which they commonly do, especially around their ears), a protein in the lizard's blood kills the bacterium in the tick that causes Lyme disease. The infection inside the ticks' gut is therefore cleared and the tick no longer carries Lyme disease." #wildlifewednesday
This #CrassulaMorgansBeauty was one among many and various succulent cuttings from my lovely imternet friend, Carole from Southern California. I was surprised by how teeny it is. Pretty sure I'll have to wait over a year--assuming it will happen, thoughts and prayers--for it to bloom.
If you haven't seen one in bloom, get thee to Google Images posthaste, typeth "crassula morgans beauty flower", then stryketh the 🔍 icon (or ENTER), and brace thyself for the splendor and glory that shall soon present itself to thee. Thou art welcome.
