This is the first time I saw this beautiful plant 'pachyphytum amethystinum' flowered, and the flower is definitely very beautiful - small but perfect :grin:

A few from this season, still a little too early due to the lousy weather!

This is my picture of Echeveria longissima, it's a very small plant and a large flower( approx 2-3cms long) in proportion but I think it is beautiful.

Unexpected flower found today. Really pleased as I hadn't noticed the bud.
