I have one of these growing in my yard — a friend in Sydney gave me a cutting and it's been growing very well, though mine hasn't flowered yet. My Sydney friend has masses of these guys in a planter box at the front of her house, all covered in masses of flowers. They're just buds at the moment, but I'll be back in Sydney in three weeks and hopefully I'll get a photo of them in full bloom!

This little guy is starting to think about flowering. I'm so in love with my succulents right now — it's Winter here, everything is in hibernation and everything's drab in my garden except for the succulents. The succulents are growing like mad, and flowering.

I do believe this is the beginning of a flower spike. I hope the flower is as lovely a colour as the bud is hinting at. He is a slow-growing creature this one, so I expect that like my black prince, it'll be months before I see the bloom.

Well, not bonsai at all, really. I went shopping a few weeks back with Mum (before I vanished into long-weekend madness) and found these lovely bonsai pots. Cheap, and pretty, and they look perfect with tiny hanging succulents in them! The first is a sedum "Little Missy", the second is an unknown sedum, and I have no idea what the third one is.
