Beautiful capture!

In Israel it is quite common (named after Jerusalem!), but I've never seen those red leaf edges to be so prominent.

Have a lovely Sunday,

Hallo Yiannis
A very pleasant image with beautiful details to appreciate. The colours of the flower is beautiful and soft on the eye. It is a very basic presentation, but indeed a pleasure to look at. Great details captured on the 'crown' of the flower. The light shining on this succulent is really lovely. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
