Hens and Chicks

I planted a Hen and Chick Sedum in a planter in my back yard -- and two days later it flowered. So Pretty! The plant is quite large -- about 8" across. I don't normally have yellow in my garden -- but I think that I can have an exception in this case......

What a pretty picture! I love hens and chicks, but have no luck growing them.

I love these plants-I can grow them for a couple of years, then they die off and I have to replace them. Here, they seem to bloom every other year or so, and sometimes change colors a bit. Sometimes they spread a lot, and sometimes they don't. They are odd, but fun!!! What a beautiful photo!

Hi ~*Martha!*~
Never before have I seen a hen in bloom!
I have had them when I was a kid.
Maybe the climate was never right?

I mailed the parcel on May 13 or around then, and I was hoping that it traveled ground mail... Since I have not yet heard from you about the bracelet I am guessing it still has not gotten to you.
Would they have held it in customs because I used fresh water pearls, sent cash and used some gold wire?
Is there a way for you to check with customs?

Yellow in a garden adds a sunny touch (for all those grey days)!

me thinketh that you might need more yellow in your garden. :)

hope your housemaking is coming along nicely.
