Flowers of succulents

 Some of the blossoms. The flowers of succulents are usually small. But cute and often bright. Salmon color seems to be the most popular one :-)
Above-Echeveria desmetiana.
 Before opening and after the start. I hope they will all open at approximately same time. It's such a nice color.

 A flower of a haworthia.  Haworthias seem to compete which one will grow the longer flower stalk!

Oh, I have been anticipating this one! A Ceropegia sandersonii is opening it's only huge flower (huge compared to other succulents). And it's not ready yet. It is called a parachute plant for a reason!

 One of my gasterias bloomed repeatedly this summer!
And at last, not a flower, but so very nice and odd. A Lapidaria margaretae growing new leaves.
