A succulent

Katie was correct (if you read the comments of yesterday's post about the alien "flower").

This "hen" had so many "chicks" she went to seed.

And since I unmercifully hacked off the flower right after I photographed it, I can't show you the odd juxtaposition of that tall appendage sticking out of this pot. Forethought can be a good thing. I need to find me some.

This other little clump of hens and chicks in the flower bed also produced a flower. Again, I was tired of looking at the oddity and whacked it before making photographic evidence. Not much of a blogger am I.
