Since I live in the Midwest (think cold and snow), will Hens and Chicks survive indoors in a room with lots of windows?  I usually bring the pot into the garage over the winter and take it back…Continue

It's been an extremely long winter and it's not done yet. I'm so craving gardening.

Love the rocks, and can't wait to see the bird bath when you are done. You definately scored there.

HI Robin!! ARE U surviving the winter OK?? man, what a cold one it has and STILL is for some!! I was given some nice sandstone rocks from the neighbor who sold his house and the new owner wanted them all gone. Welllll, U know a person wanting a real rock succulent garden could NOT pass that up!! So I got them. and more coming I hope, but I hope I talked them out of taking out, the middle trees and rocks that divide the yard.. Anyway.. Here is what I have right now. Changing this all out Friday, I hope my back can deal with it!! loluck!!

The Rocks I wil put together in a nice rock succulent bed! Can't wait! Hope my back holds out! My middle Iland that needs to be bigger! Work in progress! Tree was their so not much to plant their so built it up for grass and other shrubs/roses/Arch going in this spring..  CLICK on picture for a better view and back button back..

The succulent bed for winter, this really helped keep eveything going. Shoved most others in their too, and they are thriving just fine!

I've been going through my family asking them if they pass a Menards to pick up terra cotta pots. The plain ones are on clearance right now. And Hen's and Chicks and Succulents love living in terra cotta.

Arden love the dutch shoe, I've been watching them on ebay one day I will get one or two. They used to house crocus bulbs way back when. But I love what you did with the stonecrop. The color pops with the blue :)

Elizabeth, Jon is doing well. It's just hard to get to the garden when dealing with real important stuff in life, so you just do what you can when you can. And it will definitely get taken care of when things settle down because it is a passion, and reduces stress. :)

Robin,Thanks so much for your sweet words and I'm trying not to look at the weeds just what flowers are there. So very sorry about your son I pray he is better and thriving now. I will be much in prayer for him and you.Sounds as if you have one nasty neighbor. Hugs to you.

Elizabeth, our yard was over taken by weeds and trees when we were going through the liver transplant for my son. 4 of the trees we kept because they were perfectly placed. Though we still have to dig up the stumps of 4 others that we keep chopping at yearly.
And the weeds, my back yard looked like a prairie. One nasty neighbor called the grass police on us. and after me telling him what we've been doing he dropped the whole thing. (But I'm sure the lady kept calling to complain, cause that is what she does.)

So don't worry about the garden too much, things will be there when you are ready and the weather permits.
