Yes, you certainly do have some semps Vicki. Great photos. Love the little metal birdhouse.
Do you keep your tender succulents indoors over winter?

Thank you all for the kind welcome and comments. Smiling
I don't have a big collection but plan to get more.
I recently got some tender succulents and have some I winter inside.

I very much love container gardening and have several with annuals and herbs.

That's a great idea for the broken pots. I think you should submit that as a "Garden Idea" if you haven't already. I love all of your garden gems Lovey dubby .

It looks like you need to click on "Ideas" near the top of the page, then on the right it says "Access the ideas posting area. Click on that then follow the instructions.

Its not a cage, rather a trellis. Rolling my eyes.
No name for the gnome. Are you suppose to name them?!
I guess I'm not serious enough about my gnomes. Hilarious!

Well I was snooping around a local nursery and actually found some named semps!
Usually you just find generic "Hens & Chicks"
I suppose they're common ones but I snatched some up along with some cute sedums.
Potted them up today and planted some in my rock garden.

Somebody asked if I wintered over any tenders... I do have these succulents...the one rather leggy from being in all winter.
I love the one in pic #2 because its gets so blue and pink during the summer when I put it outside.
