Succulents grow quietly only to surprise me -- new pups and buds hidden between leaves, perfectly geometric shapes, etc. They're addictive ❤

They are gorgeous Rikkie 🤍 such a shame they don’t last long. But you’ve done well to capture the moment and not miss it!

This year's flower seems to be much smaller, and... Different in petal shape??? Did I post this photo in a wrong plant section? 🤔

Hmm. I scrolled back & tried to figure out if the plant looked the same. I'm no help.

@novicegardenlover @gjones thanks a lot for your investigation😘 I can now confirm that today's photos one is the same one of this entry. The petals are much point this year. Strange, isn't it!
