Just a little note regarding the picture of the hens and chickens in the previous post called CC, 9 ....those little plants were taken from my late husband's uncles home in Alamogordo, NM (he passed away in about 1990, so it was sometime before that). We took them to KC where they lived in our front yard for the ensuing 16+ or so years, before I came back to New Mexico in 2006. Now they are thriving on my front step. What a trip these little beauties have made!
BTW, they are "officially" known as: Sempervivum tectorum (Common Houseleek)
