Nice one Brute - is it warm with you or is this from last year?

Thanks
No that was from July of 2015.
From this evening. Bees getting busy on the wild currant.

A nice succulent, I believe some form of Echeveria.

I would exclude Euphorbias and maybe concentrate on Crassula and Echeveria sp.

... Possibly Echeveria setosa, but the sample I had (a young one), despite having almost the same type of flowers, was not having any branches (possibly branches will develop with age). Branches look very much like those of a Crassula, they have segments which leave a clear cut (with a new skin already at the edges) if you rip off a branch.

You are correct, my mind-numbness. I changed the word above. Thanks.

I have a lot of wisteria in the yard, but it can be a struggle to get an image which conveys the nature of it, as it is both linear and a mass of color. Here are some scenes from that struggle. Comments welcome.
