aizoaceae on the roadside

I apologize for going off-topic but I just had to show this one (and it's an aizoaceae after all). :)

These carpets of delosperma cooperii grow everywhere here in Nara, and seing them in full bloom now warms my heart like nothing else (even more than the weather: it's over +30°, muggy but no sign of the promised rainy season yet). They have such beautiful silky flowers! I'm definitely getting seed vessels before heading back to Germany.
