Succulents and their flowers

I'm a huge fan of succulents. I love them for their myriad shapes and colours, their thick fleshy stems and leaves as well as the fact that they are soooo easy to care for. But it's only lately that I've noticed them for their flowers, which are pretty striking too. Here are some I picked from my mother-in-law's garden.
Are you a fan of succulents, like me? What do you love most about them?

I am a fan of succulents. I just planted some with a Lavender Kew Reds. The leaves of these lavender are so fragrant. Succulents are easy to plant and to take care of.

I'm a big fan of succulents. I admit I went off them for a bit but now I have them all over the place.
What I like best is their easy of propagation.

I know about soreness. I didn't realize you worked some muscles while on a horse. I was literally sore from shoulders to thighs the next day.

I love how hardy they are. I think they are way more beautiful than roses. They are so alien and that makes them so beautiful!

I'm not too sure if I'm a fan of succulents. I love to look at them from other people's garden and all. But my "brown thumb" has a really bad reputation that I can "kill" any plants under my care so I never have one in my own house. :) These from your MIL's garden are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.
