These beauties evidently enjoy being ocean-side, as we saw them here along Manhattan Beach and also in Baja California where our daughter got married. Happy Friday!

    They get a bad press for being invasive but I love them, Janet. Happy memories for you.

    I love Pig Face. It is a native plant to Australia – 6 species and around 30 species which the rest are from South Africa. It really helps dune erosion but probably can overtake native plants in the wrong place

    Lovely pop of colour, Janet!

    Gorgeous flowers at this lovely beach.

  5. Beautiful to see the pink with the blue of the sky. Used to enjoy seeing them in SA.

    I just planted some to take over and area that needs color. I love them too. Love them more against the ocean.

  7. Lovely! They used to and maybe still do in places line the cliffs along Hwy 1.

    I photographed them several times myself. Then I heard there was an effort to remove them all because they’re not native and they were killing off the native wildflowers. I don’t know what happened to that effort as I lost track of the updates after I moved. Interesting isn’t it how something so lovely can be a nuisance too.

    Such a pretty color to those flowers.

    Wow – what a shot.

  10. The flowers are pretty, but the leaves are very attractive, too! And anything with a beach background is attention-grabbing for me! Nice finds, Janet! 🌞

  11. We get them here in South Africa too as Brian said, Carpobrotus quadrifidus. We call them Elandsvy

    They do look so elegant alongside the beach 🙂
