Cyclamen in Bloom, no Photo Filter Required

The cyclamens outside the family room bay window have begun to bloom. The plants are on a well-shaded slope and it's gray and raining, but the flowers are literally glowing in the low light. Amazing. Bonus: I bought them off the clearance rack at Lowe's last fall for $1 each. Booyah. Bargain! Anyone have any guesses as to the variety? The pot labels were struck out so I couldn't tell.

Kalanchoe Marnieriana in bloom

After a long summer with heat and no water (summer weather didn't really end until November), the recent rain and cool weather has the succulents around the acre growing new leaves and flowering like crazy. This one is a Mariner's Kalenchoe (Kalanchoe marnieriana) blooming near the pond. Most of my Kalanchoes have orange to red blooms, but this one produces flowers that are salmon pink, so it gets a spot right up front where everyone can see it.

I didn't always like these plants and even went so far to chop this one all the way to the ground. When it grew back it came back as two plants. One produces pink blooms, the other blue. Kinda neat.
