How Can You Be in Two Places at Once?


Today I'm over at Bethany Warner's blog, reminiscing about my first Bouchercon and my first visit to a Big City (Chicago) on my own.

Please come over and leave a comment so I won't feel like the wallflower at the dance!

I love that plant! What is its name? Thanks for your visit, Vicki!

Beautiful form and color, I think. It's an echeveria -- sometime called a Hen and Chicks because it produces little offshoots.

I thought that was Hen and Chicks, but what a big hen! I love when the grow and grow on a bank.

I know you'll do great and have a good time to boot! Please enlighten us during your time there, if you have time, or when you return.

Hey, Pat, Bouchercon isn't till Oct. 14 or thereabout but I'll certainly take my laptop if at all possible and post from there.

That's a beauty of a hen, isn't she? I haven't checked to see if there are chicks --will do so tomorrow. I'm afraid to plant her out, not knowing how she'll do in the winter. I have other smaller ones that survive (echeverias, but of a different type) but this one has such succulent leaves that I can't imagine it could take freezing weather. I'll bring her inside

Thanks, Carol! My other half is less lonely with you and Kaye over there keeping me company!
