The flower stem grew for the first time out of the succulent which I have had for about 7 years. There is a matching succulent in the pot on the opposite side of steps up to the barbeque area.
I had been watching the Triffid growing for weeks, and was getting totally cross because I was sure it would flower while we were away.
But it hasn't!
Isn't it stunning???
Each day there are a few more flowers open up. I suspect that it will keep me entertained for a few weeks yet.
