I called it the Birdie flower. The flowers are tiny and they look like little birds. I have yet to find out their botanical name. I managed to find a couple of images of the flower on the internet, but they didn’t state the name of the flower. I guess they are as clueless. If you know what they are, do tell me.

Some time ago, a neighbour gave me some cuttings of the plant. They look like succulents. I stick them in a pot, not really expecting anything from it. The said neighbour only mentioned that the flowers shaped like little birds.

After a week or so, the cuttings grew shoots and from there it grew quite quickly. A few months later, they started blooming. At first, I thought they were buds, and I was waiting for them to bloom. It was only on upon closer inspection that they were actually the birdie flowers my neighbour talked about.

After a few rounds of blooms, the plant was growing out of shape, and looking tired. That's when I decided to give them a trim. When nothing happened after a few weeks, I thought I had over done it and they were dead. Luckily, they started shooting again.
