the Vowel Plant

I love my Aeoniums.................A E I O U.    no Y.
They are like goofy green flowers or
a head of rubber lettuce trying to be a palm tree.

Perfectly asymmetrical mandalas.
Tough as nails.
Lovely in color and form, chartreuse, burgundy, chocolate

When anyone get gets too tall, a good wack and they begin again as stubs. 
Time to bring them in for the winter, where this one inspired a drawing and a photo.
