Hi Pitta ~
My houseleeks have been under snow for several days...
... I hope they survive ! :o)

20 Dec, 2009

 

Love colours snow acts like a blanket.

26 Dec, 2009

 

Thanks, Sixpence...
Yes lovely colours of these houseleeks.
The snow has melted, and you're right...
.. acted like a blanket..
my houseleeks are fine. :o)

27 Dec, 2009

 

I am happy they are not harmed, such pretty plants.

27 Dec, 2009

 

I edit some of the GoYpedia .. and I asked especially for one of my categories to be houseleeks...... as you say... pretty plants :o)

27 Dec, 2009

 

Thank you for guiding me , I shall type it in and have a look

27 Dec, 2009

 

Easiest way to find anything in GoYpedia is to go to the base of the page and click on the letter...
...e.g. H for Houseleeks, C for Climbing Plants...
... W for Wellies !
I hope this helps. :o)

Thank you for the directiions.

That is spectacular. I wish my Semps. would look as good as that. This autumn they have all gone green and lost a lot of lower leaves. Perhaps the very wet autumn did them a mischief.

Hi Poaannua ~
These houseleeks are in a container, so probably less affected by the autumn damp. There are more pics of these Semps. on my houseleeks blog with my poem for Dawnsaunt.

Never seen anything remotely like these. Spectacular !
