I was rather pleased with my A.striatula flower until I saw this!

Each has its own beauty, Meanie! I will be just as pleased with a striatula flower, unique.

I need more yellow flowering succulents. Seen a couple of Echeveria that look good.

Yeah, always, sometimes just a little understated.

Agree with that! One of the delights of the flowers on the smaller succulents I think.

Taking macro's of small flowers or less showy flowers (to us), many times reveal a wondrous combination of colours as can some uninteresting flowers give strong scents and some HUGE ones, no scent. Cannot help to love it.

You're so right! Ledebouria socialis is a great example.

Yes. Also many of the Crassulaceae family.

That's true - I'm starting off a wee Echeveria collection. E.pulvinata should be the next to bloom.
