Cactus Monday Succulent!

In lieu of Cactus Monday, I decided to change my header to a gorgeous specimen of Aptenia cordifolia variegata. This plant is growing at the college garden, and has no blooms at this time, but the area of white leaves is growing near dead center of the plant, and makes it look just so beautiful. Wowzers! I'm in love!
Happy Cactus Monday everyone!!!

This one is lovely! I finally found one at Lowe's after seeing my mother's last summer and it refusing to take root here! Does this one have pink flowers?

Have a great day!

Martha- I use an old torn up peice of crap camera...just a Nikon Cool Pix 5.0 MP...really have to work at it to get it to take a clear shot. This was my second Cool Pix, and I might get a third becasue I like the size and convenience of already knowing this one...but the newer ones have the stabilization and higher MP's too...so would probably be happier...as soon as I get a job!!!!! :)
