Pretty picture: Fenestraria rhopalophylla flower

This is an old picture: Fenestraria, like Lithops spp. (to which they are related), are fall bloomers. This picture is from last October 25.


As I recall, they were blooming when they came in, and the excitement was kind of short-lived: within about a week, the blooms were over, and we didn't even get that full week, because they're one of those flowers that won't open all the way if it's cloudy. Still kind of cool, though.
