Welcome to this week’s {floral friday}!

Happy Friday! I hope y’all will have a great start into the weekend! Do you have anything fun planned?

This week’s flower is the Kalanchoe — a plant I bought during Christmas-time. Almost two months later it’s still holding up well, as you can see. :)

A few facts about the Kalanchoe:

  • The Kalanchoe is native to Madagascar.
  • They are succulents like cacti.
  • The Kalanchoe is easy to care for and comes in great variety of colors.
  • They are toxic! Kalanchoe species contain a substance known as bufadienolide cardiac glycosides which can cause cardiac poisoning.
  • They open their flowers by growing new cells on the inner surface of petals, thus forcing them outwards. {source}

I’m partying here! ❤

    I love Kalanchoes as well. I posted mine since my flowers were different. I guess we were on the same wave length today.
    Have a great weekend,

    Vanessa, your Kolanchoes are so pretty. I had them in my backyard at a former house I owned, and let me tell you they were gorgeous. Super easy to care for and so pretty. Mine were bright red. Anyhoo, thank you for sharing. Hope to see you Monday for Make it Pretty Monday. I’ll definitely be back on Sunday for your fun bash. Wishing you a pretty weekend.. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
