Mini Aloe

This is some sort of aloe plant, but without the subtle prickly edges that most aloe plants have. What exactly it's called I don't know (Susie, you might know!). It grows all along the cliffs and ground near the coast line.

I don't know the botanical name but we call it iceplant. You'll see it along the freeways too. It's quite hardy and has several different colors of flowers. It makes great ground cover...

Neat photo! I could have used this plant a couple of weeks ago when I had my bad sunburn. ;)

Susie, my dad sent me an email today and said it was called "Carpobrotus Edulus" - aka Iceplant. It does indeed make beautiful ground cover. I read about it on Wikipedia. I would love to grow it here! Check this out - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iceplant

You'd be in the right place if you got a sun burn while you were visiting : )
