Semps are looking great at this time of year.
I love to photograph them.

BEAUTIFUL Jo Ann.

I have to grow all mine in pots and make pictures with them because the animals love to eat them. I do miss putting them in the garden. I have a succulent garden that they would be such a beautiful addition.

Beautiful semp photos Jo Ann. I love the way some of them are peeking out from under other types of plants.

Cinta that is so sad that you have problems with critters eating them. How are your container ones doing?

Lynn thanks. If I ever get my legs under me for anytime this winter I will paint this one.

The color changes are so subtle.

Cinta Sorry about your garden semps. I have some in a bowl at the end of a path they dont seem to be eaten but bunnies have cleaned out all the small places I started semp families.

Thanks Bev.
I think it is compelling, cant figure out why.
Maybe the concentric circle patterns the leaves make.
