Isn´it beautiful?

Dyckia hb Bela
Bela means beautiful in Portuguese and all Latin Languages.
Bela is also short for Izabel. Izabel is my mother´s name and she was the last of a 12 brothers family.
she was born in August, 27th 1912!
She would be about to celebrate her 101 anniversary...

So this is Bela!

Bela is a wonderful looking Delicata hibrid and my heart  beats faster when
 my eyes see this wonder in spines.
Bela, belissima!

Dyckia reitzii rubra

It is getting redder as the cold weather gets closer...
Notice the pure white underleaves.

Dyckia gloriosa

Covered by the Autumn dew the morning sun touches it by its side...
