They Call it "Life Leaf" in the Abacos

It grows along the edges of our back yard  between sun and shade.  Right now it is in bloom.

The leaf looks as though it were embroidered along the edges.

It is simply beautiful.

Added on 20 February:  Since writing this page I have found detailed information about this plant. It's Latin name  is Kalanchoe pinnata and is said to be used in the topics for medical purposes.   We are also warned that it can be invasive in some locations especially where the soil has been disturbed.  It is also said to be a popular house plant.
