August 2018 - Echeverias

August's topic is Echeverias - scope for plants or flowers. I'm hoping for photos of some of these very photogenic plants.

Lots of desirable plants, as expected; Suculentia setting a high standard from the start with photos showing leaf texture very clearly. I did like Liz's E. chihuahuaensis and the view of 'Domingo' flowers, but in the end it was a choice between 2 photos of Echeveria setosa. Rod's v. minor flowers just lost out to the composition and overall effect of Geri's v. deminuta. Over to you for the next topic, Geri.
