Somehow I was sure I had posted here about these amazing little plants a couple of years ago, but I guess I didn't. I first saw them at the beach in 2008, and at the time, I only posted them on Flickr. I saw them yesterday at a different beach, but a little earlier in the year, so they were blooming. This plant is called Mesembryanthemum crystallinum, commonly known as ice plant, and it's an invasive. I don't care. I love these things. Go look at my whole Flickr set.
