Close Up

Melbourne’s laneways…

lamp-post_0465are good for all sorts of photos.

One could argue that this is a close up…

lamp-post_0466but it is not as close as this.

Definitely a close up.

Floral Friday Challenge.

~~~~~

About six months ago we purchased some

pig-face succulents for a dry part of the garden.

pigface_0222Fast forward to early July…
pigface_0215and these were two of the flowers we found on one of the four plants.

I have not seen the flowers completely open,

but expect they will measure around

75-100 millimetres across.

Also, I wasn’t expecting flowers until summer(ish)

and the other three plants seem to be adhering to this idea.
