I have many different succulents, as well as geraniums, in pots all around my patio because these plants survive in the Southern California heat. The succulents have been in the same pots for years and sometimes look a little anemic, light green/gray instead of green. But they get a shot of Miracle Grow or Ironite now and then and continue to be happy plants.

Each succulent has a different bloom, and if you don't pay attention, you might miss it. Here's a succulent that I photographed today.

Here is the bloom -- isn't it beautiful, eerie, perfect, unbelievable?

And guess what? The flies love the blooms.
