Thank you, Chris.
I love all these ideas to create garden art with sempervivums, any one of them would be a fun project.

Chris great artricle. Look forward to getting back home so I can start planting containers, some that weren't meant to be containers. nodding

I love the hypertufa, you are so creative in the things you make. I also love that outhouse. Thumbs up

I think these plants are special because they inspire so much creativity in people. I can't think of another plant that made me want an ant either!

Christine, do you have any sempervivum?

canadanna - You're really going to have fun with it once you give it a try!

Glad you all liked the ant. Unfortunately I haven't been able to ever find another one, so if any of you do, please let me know.

Well Chris, No ~ I don't have any.

I think I might be the only plant loving person in the world that doesn't have an sempervivum growing. Lol! But I love natural art in the garden and if I start on one of these fun projects, I have a feeling I will be hooked...

Chris, thanks so much for the callout! I'm still waiting for the snow to disappear, but maybe it's a good time to get the greenhouse cleaned out - who knows? I might just find something that cries out to be planted!
