This is my post for the Our World meme. This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies. To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.
While many of our roses, lilies and day lilies have large blossoms, our yard is home to some tiny flowers as well. We have planted Hens and Chickens (Sempervivum) in several places in our yard. Hens and Chickens are wonderful succulents that look good year around.
In spite of their name — Sempervivum means ‘always alive’ — hens do die out. But they blossom before they die. The flowers are tiny, but they are pretty.
When the hens die, their chickens grow to take their place. It’s a shame the hens have to die, but what a way to go!!
