Adenium obesum

I missed making last week's post! Not that I didn't try, but I was doing so many other things that I just didn't get to upload any photos - and there weren't any plants really screaming at me to post them either. Really a quiet week - no blooms to speak of out of the ordinary.

Then in the middle of the week I happened to take a look around the side (very neglected area) and realised that my Adenium obesum was in bloom! I'm ashamed to post the plant so you'll only see the flowers - it's not even in a real pot but just a shallow tray in which a branch managed to root and grow.

Adenium obesum

It's jumbled up with Euphorbia tirucalli, Sanseviera cylindrica, Kalanchoe daigremontiana, and assorted cacti all sort of growing wild - some now in the earth and others not, in a narrow strip of earth alongside the house.
