Early spring blossoms

I’ve been fortunate to enjoy some lively blooms on my terrace recently.  Four large containers hold these Tuscan succulents, which are attractive all year long.

I am calling this pretty, hardworking plant an “Easter cactus” since, like the succulent known as the “Christmas cactus” blooms around December 25 each year, this hardy plant blooms each spring.

So pretty!  It grows both upright and with suspended trails of stems, leaves and blossoms.
