Pigface

The common name for this spectacular plant is PIGFACE......now why would anyone give such an unflattering name to such a pretty flower?

It isn't a very nice name is it. I think it is also referred to as ice-plant which is so much nicer. It looks really spectacular.

Hello Olive
Sorry to hear you 'lost' my comment
If you look at my recent posts you'll see we were actually in Adelaide the other week. Thanks for the offer of meeting for coffee - I knew I'd be tied up with other people so thats why didn't contact you - thinking about some of the days maybe I should of lol
House moving going ok?
The 'proper' name for the plant is Mesembryanthemum - pig-face or ice plant is so much easier tho' lol
Take care
Cathy
