The other day when i was at the beach, i came across this strange looking flower. I have never seen this flower before, but it definitely caught my attention. Do you know what this flower is called? I have some wild guesses, but i will wait for your reply.

If it helps to know, i saw it on the sidewalk outside a restaurant while walking back to my car. Any guesses?

    That sure is beautiful…
    but I have no idea what it is.
    Oh… by the way… the poem that
    you replied to is no longer.
    I have another in its place.
    It sounded too much like a sermon…not me.
    Take care!

    Hi Ari,
    (I have blogrolled this exciting link.)
    That looks like a cross between CACTUS, ROSE and a LOTUS: I will call it CROTUS.

    Btw, can you please change the url for my link in ur blogroll to:

    Naice flower!
    I think I made something like this in my Art class in grade 2!
    no really it was with ‘crap paper’ but still the mean big huge teacher gave me a B!.
    She said, ‘It has too many petals for the stem to hold’.

    Yeah…kind of spooky timing again
    last night… commenting
    at the same time again.
    Well, I put my poem about “Linda”
    back on my blog… as she read your comment about it.
    She sent me an email to ask if she
    was the “Linda” I wrote about.
    I told her I only have one friend
    named Linda.
    So,she wanted to read it…
    I won’t be taken it off again…
    not really sure why I did in the
    first place.
    Well, Take care!

    Are you still needing rain there?
    It has been raining all night here
    and just is not going to stop.
    I will gladly send some of this rain your way if you still need it!
    Crazy and nutty weather!
    All I wanted was rain… but now it should stop or we will get
    some flooding!
    So, the flower was a cactus
    flower… huh?
    So very beautiful!
    Take care!

    Have you gotten the rain?
    I sent it Special Delivery!
    It is sooooooooo beautiful here
    this morning!
    Sunny, not too hot and the air is so fresh and crisp after the all
    night rain!

    I am doing better today.
    I was upset for a couple of reasons
    this week.
    My ex brother in law Michael
    died a week ago today!
    He has been divorced from my sister for a long time, but we stayed good friends.
    I was just sad remembering him as
    he did not have a very good life for quite some time.
    He was quite sick… and about
    6 months ago he had to go into
    a nursing home… and he was way too young to be there.

    I saw him recently, and all he talked about was that he “wished
    Chris(his son) would call him and
    come visit him” Now, it is too late for Chris to call or visit
    him… that just made me so very
    And, I was planning to call him on
    the day he died.

    And, then there is my husband.
    I keep asking him to read my blog,
    but he answers me” But, I don’t
    like poetry”
    Yeah… we are different… like day and night.
    I told him this morning ” I am
    going to run away with the milkman
    (yes, we do have a milkman)
    If you do not read my poetry”

    So, I will let you know soon if I
    am with my milkman. I bet he likes

    Have a great day… and let me know if you get that rain I sent!
    Take care!

    Interesting comments on your blog. Must be a cactus of some sort. I like your headline banner think up at the top. Very nice.

    Margie, belive it or not. I got your delivery. I had a dream full of rain. I was out there in a green lush field taking pictures, running wild, soaking wet, no worries in life. It was fun and felt good. Rain is something i dont get to see a lot here… So everytime it rains, im out on the road to soak it in 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear about your ex brother-in-law. May his soul rest in peace and may you and your family have the strength to bear the loss and move on.

    Milkman? lol.. that was funny. We dont have a milkman, but we have a UPS delivery guy who is into Tupac. Crazy fan of Tupac he is… I wonder if i can ask him to post on your blog, maybe he can start rapping to your poetry… hahahaha… just messing with you.

    Take care and be strong.

    ari… Wow! That was a neat dream!
    No cares in the world… just doing what you love to do in the rain… being happy and free!

    Thanks so much for the comforting
    words about my ex-brother-in-law.
    I miss him a lot… and do grieve
    for his son and daughter.
    It is sad to lose a father when he is still young.

    As for my milkman… well, I think
    I will just let him be… he might
    like poetry less than my hubby…
    and where would I be then?
    The UPS delivery guy rapping to
    my poetry sounds pretty cool though… ok… check with him
    and get back to me. Just kidding !
    That would be pretty funny though!
    Take care!

    No one has named your succulent yet? It’s either a sempervivum or a sepervivum calcoreum rosularia. The rounded leaves lend itself to a rosularia. If not, this is the right track. Succulents. Sempervivum calcoreum and what ever funky name they put after it. It’s beautiful.

    You found it. Name it. I vote for Bill!

    the first pic with those fierce combinations of green and white specks all around (those flowers are lovely) truly looks great!

    Bob for short. We have a winner!
