Lovely Crassula Cactus Kid, mine has only one small flower. Actually I have very little in flower, although this Dudleya brittonii is making an effort. Spring still seems a distant dream!

Thanks for sharing these photos! Brings welcome colour to January in the UK! I have Aloe petrophila in full flower in my office at the moment.
