Sedum, hens and chicks, and other small succulents have become one of the latest gardening crazes … they are easy to care for, require minimal watering and offer seemingly endless opportunities for stretching one's container gardening creativity. Sedum and Sempervivum, the botanical family name for hens and chicks, have intricate leaf patterns in shades of yellow-green, gray-green, dark red and variegations of these colors. They will flower, but their growth patterns are their main draw.
Mid-way through June and it's again garden party day in the garden blogging world. On the 15th of each month, Carol at May Dreams Gardens hosts Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. She posts what is blooming in her garden and gives bloggers all over the world the opportunity to share what is blooming in their gardens. Whether you garden or not, the photos are wonderful and inspiring. In my Connecticut garden 2012 blooms continue to be about two weeks earlier than they were in 2011.
