Hen and Chicks

Edited to add the blog link for the tipsy pots. I am going to make another one using bigger pots. I only had small sizes on hand but after hitting thriftstore I have some bigger ones. Here is the link. You should read all the post of this blog. She is very talented and makes things out of curb finds.

We got rain!!!! We also have a "cold" front which has dropped the 100's down to the 80's. The animals and I are loving every minute.
GrannyJ shared some of her hens and chicks with me. Every morning when I visit her blog I also love to read some of her favorite blog neighbors. A couple of them had the neatest idea on flower pots so I borrowed the idea and used them for the hen and chicks. Thank you GrannyJ!

How do you get the pots like that? Magic?

I'm glad you got a break in the weather. I'm sure it's better for the critters.

You need a few good sized hens in those pots. Watch you mailbox next week. ;)

Well look at that, what a neat idea to make these tipsy pots and plant hens & chicks in them!! I have them growing in my faerie garden and when I looked at them yesterday I noticed they had a whole bunch of new chicks-) Love ya sis. xoxo

Neat pots!! How do you do that?

It was 8 degrees here this morning and I love it but I think I'm the only one. All sorts of things were cancelled because of the cold weather and the stupid thing is that come Sunday, it's going to be 29 with a humidex of 35!!!

We still haven't gotten ANY rain... We are very dry---but we are at least COOLER.

I love my hens and chicks they are amzing to fill in places under trees where I don't get enough sun to grow flowers and need to keep the weeds down

Your flowerpot tree is curious indeed.

I love the picture of your homestead in the heading. It all looks so cool and welcoming in amongst the trees.
