Cactus Monday

Happy Cactus Monday! Today I am sharing more Sempervivums.


These Sempervivums are named Oh My. They are happy with their home in an old tea kettle.


Another shot of Oh My

I think this may be Dotty Sempervivum. I bought it with no name but I have seen other Dotty Semps and it looks very close.

This is an un-named Sempervivum

Check out the creator of Cactus Mondays Terri and...sign up to be part of the fun(-:

I like them! Every last one-so pretty and fun to grow!

Jeannie said...

Really liking your sempervivum photos!

I recently started my collection and can't wait to replant them into neat containers. We're moving soon, so there is no real point in doing that now.

Looking forward to checking out the rest of your blog.

Keep up the great work!
Jeannie

Hi Joy
Thanks! I feel somewhat better. Just tired.
I think the Semps would grow great in your shallow bowl(-:

Hi Tina,
They are fun to grow...and they grow anywhere(-:

Hi Jeannie,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!

Hi Darla,
Boots are fun to plant in too. They make great planters!

Hi Kudzu,
I am so glad you are back too!!!
The alligator shoes are a crack up. I got them at a garage sale brand new with tag still on. 90.00 pair of shoes! I paid a dollar! I said I was planting in them...I think the lady thought I was nuts!!! Well they were cool and not my size(-:

Happy Cactus Monday Cindee! I love your Sempervivums, they have such clever names. :) 'Oh My' looks pretty content in the black teakettle.

RainGardener said...

Hmmm maybe I should do that since I have so many semps now. Great collection you have!

How beautiful. That old tea pot is the perfect place for the sempervivum. You are so good at this kind of thing ~ I know I've said that before but it's true.

Hi perennialgardener,
Thanks(-: I have a lot of different ones and they are fun to plant into different containers(-:

Hi RainGardener,
You should try planting them in different things! They don't seem to mind where they are!(-:

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
Thanks(-:

Hi Kathleen,
Thanks(-: I really love these plants because they seem to be so easily adaptable to different containers.(-:
