I had never heard of the succulent ground cover “hens and chicks” until just a few years ago.
I found them completely fascinating.
As I develop my garden here…slowly
I was reminded of their interesting characteristics and thought this one area would be a perfect place for them!
I asked if anyone was thinning out some hens and chicks
sure enough a neighbor hooked me up.
via email I arranged a rendezvous with this lovely woman’s husband in the Jewel parking lot.
I love it!!
Delightfully, the Gill’s gifted me two full trays of hens and chicks.
See for yourself how perfect they are for this space.
there are actually quite a variety of hens and chicks
the last picture shows a different kind and one i purchased for myself for Mothers Day
