Hen and Chicks
I have hen and chicks coming out of my ears! I have transplanted a bunch, bought some other varieties, and traded some. It seems to be a plant that does not require a green thumb. I'm not a good gardener. I do all right, and that's about it. I had a pair of MHP's military boots that I planted them in. They were so cute! They thrived in the boots! I ended up sending them with him to his new armory and they sit out front. I managed to get two pair of boots last year and finally planted some hen and chicks in them today. I hope they do as well. I love the fact that one set of boots had holes in the front that I could stick a couple babies in! That's an ugly patchouli plant next to the one set. It may be ugly but I'm hoping it will grow so I can dry the leaves and make sachets for my closet. Yes, I always stink of patchouli or as a bartender stated, "You smell like a Grateful Dead Concert." What can I say? I love it. Although I do have to say the patchouli perfume I picked up in Italy is exquisite and I receive many nice remarks about it.
This is a shallow dish in which I put the different varieties that do not winter outside. The same with the Hen planter. The boots will stay outside all winter and do just fine. Arent' they just the cutest things?! Does anyone need any? I still have two pots full and I don't know what to do with them. I'm afraid if I plant them in the ground they will be as big as cauliflowers!
My husband helped me with my priorities on his day off after a drill weekend.
