Over the past week, I’ve been keeping a beady eye on one of my lithops.
Very intently. Because …
… it’s been gearing up to flower.
Each day I’ve willed it on,
urged it on,
cheered it on,
until, huzza! It did the deed and threw itself open.
Welcome, my little lovelies, welcome. It’s been worth the wait. Sadly, it’s all for my benefit only as there’s no-one else in the greenhouse to appreciate them. I thought therefore, I’d share them with you.
Meanwhile, all my other lithops (and there are quite a few) just sit there; nice and quiet but non-flowering. Great lazy dollops.
