LOL. I just had a heart attack I clicked on this photo and saw my name and thought shoot, I picked my own photo for bloom of the day. Then I realized, which I actually knew already, my month was over and it was Gretas! I have been looking at this photo as a thumbnail in the line up for awhile now, but never knew it was mine. LOL Thanks Greta. I just love semps.

Oh wow, what a beauty, great shot Kell! I'm not real familiar with succulent type plants but when I was visiting Southern California last summer I saw some really awesome succulent gardens. It made me wish I lived in a less humid climate where I could grow these lovely plants.
