Lithops Julii Coming To Life

Sometimes I think Lithops live for the fall.

They sit on my windowsill all through the year and even when they grow a new pair of leaves it does not seem like such a big deal... but once they start to flower, that's when all the life force gathers in these little plant balls and explodes through their fissure into a gorgeous flower.

(Sorry for being overly prosaic today, but I haven't had the chance to look at my Lithops properly in a while.)
