LOL! I did find my few remaining semps and I tried to doll them up for a picture but they're looking pretty ragged. The second one is a loner I spotted out of the corner of my eye, all those weeds! And it will have to be moved, that bed is very wet!

They'll be fine once the weather improves. I love the dark points on the leaves, almost purple.

No, the one bed gets really, really wet. I mean standing water after a big rain. But I get some more I can move it with them and be in good company.

I don't know if the purple tips are from the cold or what?

Sounds like you have it all planned out I tip my hat to you.

I don't think the purple on the tips is damage, it's just part the semps beautiful colouring Lovey dubby

Very nice Arlene. I agree with Kate, that is it's normal coloring, and lovely at that. Lovey dubby

Very nice Arlene! Yes even though its normal semp colouring it could be brought on by the weather!! That's why I like when Seattle gets cold snaps, the semps get really pretty!
Thanks for the photos! I tip my hat to you.
Plants bring me peace and calm, more of what we all need Smiling

I just haven't been able to get out to see if I can find any more...busy with the farm...but I will. I had no idea there were so many pretty COLORS of them! And I like the fuzzy ones too.

Everyone's pictures are so nice! I loved the kid's project and I loved the toolbox. All of them! Thumbs up
