This is the plant . . .
and these are its flowers . . .
Together they seem a little odd to me.
But in a good way.
I believe it is an echevaria succulent. If that's the case, then it is far from its original homeland of Mexico or northwestern South America. It's so very different from the dark green, leafy things that grow in my neck of the woods. Enchanting, really.
I wish I could keep it, but my house is the place where plants come to die. So I will give it to my grandmother tomorrow for her 88th birthday. She and my grandfather are green to their very cores and will take good care of this new friend.
And I will visit often.
