Hens & Chicks - The Family Unit

Just a quick post to say, now I'm here, but in a minute I'll be gone.

We're off to watch our oldest daughter try to take control of the Lehigh River in the Lafayette/Lehigh Regatta. Go Lauren and go Lafayette!

Can't wait to see what's blooming in Pennsylvania! As for the above photo? It's an unknown variety of Sempervivum and it was actually pretty hard for me to get them to take to growing in the rock wall.

Wishing all of you a spectacular weekend,

Melanie

They look gorgeous there in the wall. I'm trying to do the same thing. I just put some in last fall and it looks like they survived the winter.

It looks really cool growing out of the stone though. I can't remember if it was on a blog or in a magazine where I saw someone grow a "collar" or succulents on a gargoyle. Either way it looked amazing.
