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. http://www.desert-tropicals.com/Plants/Crassulaceae/Echeveria.html
A great event!
Yes, you can!
I hope so, Miss Yves!
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
That is a gorgeous Hen!! :0I left a comment about your trip over where the other half of you is! HA!
Thanks, Carol! My other half is less lonely with you and Kaye over there keeping me company!
