Well I ordered from Young's and I am kind of embarrassed to say what I got. I had some good sales at a bead show I did on saturday was way to hot and I thought I needed a reward so late last night I just went a little nuts. Kinda maybe got like 20

I'm working hard to keep the ones i have from dying. But it just occurred to me,i am going to have to replace the ones i lose.I tell the hubby "beds must stay full "this is the rains fault,the definition of lose is "to be deprived of or cease to have" (something)in my case sempervivums.

I think i would benefit from a 12 step program,i need about 12 new plants. nodding

The hubby & myself have cabin fever,does it show? Green Grin! Whistling

*Blush* I feel so bad that the plants i'm loosing are the ones from Bev.!!! I must come up with something i can send her.It will make me feel a little better.I'm going to put these in a strawberry pot or something.That way i can bring them in while it's raining & put them back out when the sun shines.

I was getting very partial to the big pink semp,haven't lost it or all offsets.I also like the sedum 'bithynicum' (sp.) i am hoping it hasn't drowned.I thought it was gone & it stopped raining a few days & it popped up in a couple places.I can see a little of it still holding on.I was going to try and put it in the rock garden with the Sedum 'blue spruce' & 'angelina'.I'm not sure if that's a good place or not.Any advice?

Try not to worry jojoe, these guys are hardier than we give them credit for. I've been in total panic mode over mine lots of times, but they'll spring back from even the most dire situations. Your doing a great job, hang in there! And I agree with you about the little fingers crossed guy! Hilarious!
