Hens and Chicks

hens and chickens

Spring cleanup outside has finally begun. For the most part, I’m happy to say that most of the winter has disappeared. There are only little remnants of snow left that I hope will be gone over the weekend.  Hopefully, we don’t get that big storm that has been hitting the northern and midwestern states.

Getting a good workout today raking the lawn and cleaning out the gardens feels good. I always procrastinate but this year I just jumped right in.

One of my favorite things about spring is my hens and chicks shown above. They are looking pretty good seeing that they were covered in leaves and snow all winter. I even see some new growth going on already.

Time to reward myself, for working so hard today.  CHEERS!

  1. I love those! We can grow them here. I am so glad you had a nice day to be outside working, and I think you ended it perfectly. Living in Germany for 2-1/2 years long ago, I learned to love German beer! Prost! 😊

  2. I’ve always known them as hens and chicks. leave it to Cripina to know the horticulturally correct scientific name… hehehe I’ve been gardening all week for a client so this hits close to home.

    • Todays mision is to get all the sand from the winter sanders off the sidewalk. Oh joy 🙂

  3. Hens and chicks? The plants? I thought they were something like House Leek, sempervivum something. And that was today’s learning experience. 🙂
