I suppose all plants, animals, birds and even humans have to adapt to their environment. Plants like these succulents adapt to arrid conditions by storing water in their leaves, they are called Xerophytes.

Thanks Nicky for dropping by and your kind comment.

Wow! I really love your cool Xerophytes blossoms. The composition are amazing! I love the way you place the them randomly and varies in size.You must be very busy lately.

I believe spring is soon ending and follow by hot summer.
Even I can't stand the weather here in Malaysia, it's getting very very hot..., the grass in my garden are now turning into yellow:(
How I wish the grass could store water in their leaves!
