Wow! I still have trouble seeing that as a Kalanchoe! Beautiful!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I've seen it several times. Here are two pictures of different plants taken on different dates. You can see a little bit of the foliage.

Paul that is funny! I agree with Hetty, totally saw a rose, or hops or something like that, but not kalanchoe! I tip my hat to you.

Do you by any chance have cultivar names?

Fabulous antique looking blooms! You can often find these kind at grocery stores and florists, Kalanchoe blossfeldiana.

Here is a shot by Lynn of a rose shaped one in our database:
