Does that ever happen to you?
You get an idea and
It gets stuck in your head....
until you do something about it and
then your happy and can move on!
Well, I had the idea to make this old rusty metal birdbath
into a planter for
~Hens & Chicks~
Problem was there was only one place around here
that had Hens & Chicks that weren't in a
strawberry pot and then they only had one variety.
So I bought it....
Hens & Chicks!!
So today I met my hubby in the
for lunch and then off I went
Big Nursery for
~Hens & Chicks~
I found so many different varieties
so I had to control myself.
Did you know there are 72 different varieties?
That's what the tags say anyway!
So I brought them home and planted them right away.
In this sunny, most of the day, location in our yard.
The tall green plants are called
Mine get white flowers on them
and come back every year and they spread
no special attention needed.
There are also daylilies, hosta and right in front
you see Sedum.
Behind the Obedient Plant I planted
1 White & 1 Purple
1 Oriental Poppy
and I finally put my
in it's final resting place....
So I am excited about my little garden in this planter!
Above the rock I have
next to that is
Aida Hens & Chicks
then the only variety I could find close to me was labeled
Mixed Variety....creative huh!
then something I had in my yard just for texture
then the 3 little ones with the red tips is
Sunset Hens & Chicks
then the cluster on the bottom of the rock is
Glabrum Hens & Chicks
I call it Spider Web because it has a white cottony webbing
in each cluster. And then in the very center is
Yolanda Hens & Chicks
A very pretty blue foliage with wine red bases.
So what do you think?
Do you have Hens & Chicks?
I can't wait to see what happens with this little garden.
I had fun planting it and adding a few little fun touches to
it also. An old wire flower that lost it's stem, a little birdie that
fell off something I had once and the rock.
Something to look at and bring the eye up off the ground.
Thanks for stopping by!
