The Scene Today: A Succulent in Bloom in Berkeley

Supposedly succulents - like cacti - are easy to grow. Give them a little dirt, some sun, occasional watering, and you're done. For me, no such luck.
The whole experience though has me noticing succulents wherever I come across them. This plant was spotted blooming in North Berkeley outside of a laundromat near Saul's. I like the yellow edged with pink, almost as if the plant got the news that Honeysuckle is Pantone's Color for 2011.
Do you have a trick for keeping succulents alive?
Ciao Bella!
