Nice!
The second may be Orbea variegata.

I love the colouring of the second one - so unusual!

Wauw I am impressed that they flower already - they normally only flower late summer - at my place anyway.... Boughy a whole collection at Kirstenbosch a month or so ago and they are growing nicely - can't wait to see the various flowers....

Thanks for sharing

Nice Johan, you even got the fly in the first pic! I can smell that flower from here. Interestingly, the orbea has set seed here already (most of mine blew away....)
