Macro Monday: Beach succulent



These lovely flowers cover the slopes of the sandy beach at Muriwai. They start off as a yellow flower, then turn orange and then pink. Someone told me that these beach succulents play a very important role in preventing erosion.

Hello Ann. This is a special flower. Amazing because it is useful and changes into three colors.

PS. I don't have a garden. The Desert Rose was taken at a friend's garden and other places.
Thank you for coming by.

Regards.
