Beautiful Ron.  Your auriculata looks right at home amongst the succulents-who'd of thunk?

It is quite beautiful, Ron.

It is also very reminiscent of scenes in nature.  Not, of course, with the same plants--you have at least two continents represented--but, as a work of art, it's most beautiful.

Might as well throw in the other image I took that same evening.  The sun was low over the horizon and maybe only a few minutes from actual sunset.

I think I'm going to start taking more pics of the actual sunsets themselves.  Some of them are absolutely incredible.  I never tire of evening sunsets...and you know, I've never seen the green flash.

Bob, some of the plants on that hillside are aloes, euphorbias, cactuses, nolinas, dracaenas, a big old Tecomaria, an olive tree, yuccas, agaves, furcraeas, cistus and at the bottom of the hill, I finally planted my first palm (a tiny Bismarckia).  I posted that pic on the old forum.
