Getting desperate for some subjects to photograph now, today's offering is a sedum that I have in a hanging basket, which has just burst into flower.

This sedum brings a little sunshine into the house, it is very attractive. I have many growing in my garden, it's one of the few plants that seems to like the rocky lakeside ground.

I also like V1, for the abundant amount of buds, also looking fit to burst.
