My own little ice plant for the balcony

Hope you had a nice weekend and Happy Cactus Monday.

I fell in love with this plant since I saw the flowers up close (see my recent blog on ice plants  seen along the coast). So, here is my little ice plant (Pig face to Australians; yes, I know that it’s a weird name) – my most recent succulent addition to the garden.

And here is my doodle based on my sedum gold mound completed in Sharpie and acrylics paint.

Have a fantastic week.

I don't have an ice plant...but maybe you've inspired a new houseplant addition for me!

Gorgeous colors on that plant.
Love your painting also, the colors and form are wonderful. I like how you always give us two for the price of one; photos and sketch!

Like some of the other people commenting, I also remember ice plants from California. The color of your ice plant is wonderful! On your painting, I love the dark sharpie details.

Thank you for your comment on my Watery Wednesday post.

I am happy to have found your blog. I love succulents and we grow so many of them here in Arizona. I remember growing up in California, where Ice Plant covers much of the landscape areas along the freeways of Los Angeles.
