My World: Sempervivum

Sempervivum in our yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. March 28, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

We’re still waiting for Spring to come to the Plateau and stay.  We didn’t have any rain on Monday, but it was still cold and dreary.  We almost have a daffodil in bloom — I think it’s just waiting for some sunshine and warmer weather.

I did notice that our hens and chicks (sempervivum) are coming back to life.  We have several different varieties of sempervivum scattered around the yard and they have different shapes and colors.  The semp pictured above is near our small rose bed, and I like the red tips on this particular hen.

    When I saw your title, I thought you posted some historic building or such thing. Love its name, both the colloquial and scientific versions. Amazing symmetry.

    What an interesting plant! Great shot, lovely colors! Spring seems to get here in it’s own time frame! We were lucky to have it arrive early this year! Hope you have a good day, George!

    I’m glad to be where it is warm and sunny at the moment. Apparently we are having a lot of rain back home. Love the Hens and chicks. Spring can’t come fast enough to suit me!

    Mine survived too. I have them in different areas and one spilling out of a large cup. Fun plants. MB

    You guys did have some bad weather over there, so Spring will be a lil later this year, I guess. But it sure is beautiful!!! I LOVE SPRING!!!

    Great plant- I think they are pretty hardy.
    You will soon have some roses to keep it company.

    This is lovely, and so perfectly symetrical! It could actually be a piece of artwork!

    I’ve noticed mine are starting to come back now too.

  13. Leedra Says:

    My Hens and Chicks are beginning to show some life too. I was glad to see it, because I had been a little worried about some I have in a pot. I left the pot in a more exposed spot this winter.

  14. Cheryl Says:

    My small patch of hens and chicks is starting to really show off now, actually has for a week or so. I do love them.
