Coronation Day by KeldBach Coronation Day by KeldBach
A close-up of a blooming Sempervivum 'Autumn'. I thought the blooms looked like small crowns, hence the title. You can see the full plant here, taken about a week ago:

The flowers are so pretty with their complex heads and colourful extensions. The picture doesn't show us what they are and where they bloom from BUT ive got these in my garden grown from seed but "Tectorum" not autumn. I am always pleased when they throw up a flower stem thick and hardy but they die and have to be removed.........that makes me sad. 
Your clarity is to be applauded as is your title for they do appear as regal crowns. Nice shot of the complete plant. I love them just as they are without flowers. When it first grew one I didn't know what to do with it :-)

What macro are you using.......I couldn't get good pics of my flowers- macro 30mm :-(

Mandy - may your day be filled with sunshine

Thanks very much for your kind words, Mandy. Those Succulents are indeed interesting to grow and I have gathered a neat collection of them over the years. Strange that yours won't bloom, because they can grow (and bloom) almost anywhere as long as they get plenty of sunlight.

I used a 105mm macro lens with extension tubes for this shot.

Thanks again and have a nice day too :)

Hi....I find they do flower but with flowers almost the same colour as the stem.....grey / green. It must be the genus I have grown. I shall look for some seeds for spring of your type. 
I knew you must have a decent lens for it shows in the clarity of your shots. Mine is only 40mm bridge camera  and I find it lacking nowadays but couldn't manage varying lenses - couldn't carry them :-(
I must say I'm so enjoying this site and ive only been a member for couple of days. .........people are so pleasant and the calibre of photos is superb. Ive a lot to look up to. 
Wishing you a good evening and a warm night ( its supposed to be the coldest !)  Mandy
