RE: Flower ID needed!!!

Medo I'm technologically disabled,lol, I'm lucky I'm able to email you most times,lol. But I will figure it out because I went to the library and I have a guess so I need some input as to if I'm correct. I "THINK" it's Lampranthus aureus; for those of us who are also botanical named challenged, Golden (orange) Ice Plant. Which I didn't know they came in orange I thought goldens were yellow but from what I can see they come orange as well. Either way the little critter is shooting tons of seeds at me and I wasn't sure what the plant was even called. It's one my 6 year old picked up off the $2 shelf at the local nursery that didn't have a tag so I didn't pay much attention to it. NOW I'm paying attention because it's doubled in size and has a load of flowers and likes to seed. I will work on the picture tonight. Thank you as well rbrady for your guess. I can still be wrong so I need to check yours out as well. I will update you if I don't break the computer trying to force it to upload a picture tonight,lol.
