I’m sure everyone has a favorite plant or two in their garden. However, it seems that people who grow Sempervivums tend to get carried away!

Oh, what can I say after reading this. Rolling my eyes.
PERFECT says it all. It made me smile, it made me laugh, and it filled my heart with love. Not only for the semps, but all the members that interact with each other here at ATP. It has been a bonding experience extraordinaire. Group hug

Can I just say I loved, loved, loved it all? The words, the poetic flow, the history, the sharing, the tears in my eyes for grandparents (my gramps was a chrysanthemum grower), and the people whose hearts those feelings came out of have touched me tonite. Hurray! Lovey dubby Group hug
