garden surprise

succulent blossom, melbournesucculent blossom, melbournesucculent blossom melbourneCan you believe this garden marvel? A small round green not overly pretty succulent plant that can produce such an enormous and utterly lovely white flower. That stem is about 12 cm in length! I've been watching it grow over the last week or so. This plant only blossoms about every 1-2 years so finding it in full bloom this morning just made my heart sing.

  1. The flower's bigger than the plant!
    This reminds me of a night blooming cactus we used to have at a house we rented. The first time it flowered was such a lovely surprise :-)

    recently a neighbour's aloe vera gave out the most incredible flower sort of like a foxglove.
