Something to Catch the Eye

The sun really is pretty amazing. Yeah, it gives almost everything on the earth the heat and light they need to live, but it does other more subtle things too. Ever enjoy the sun beams coming through your windows in the morning, lighting up all the dust in the air? Or perhaps the way sunlight hits snow once the clouds from the storm have gone. It really does sparkle every single color, I feel bad for people who have never seen it!

There are, of course, plants that use the sun to make themselves sparkle too!

Echeveria 'Glitter'

Mesembryanthemum crystallinum

Monilaria obconica

Drosera capensis

Drosanthemum hispidum

Aptenia cordifolia

I could do a little blip about each of these. But I think I'll pass this time.
