Just a quickie today: I’m bidding farewell to another fine month of squares, with a caged up succulent. I never look at this picture without wondering if the sempervivum is rooted or balanced there.
Thanks as always for being a wonderful host, Becky!

It lives a balanced life.
I think you’re right.
Great picture, great question.
I don’t think it was rooted, but that’s just my guess.
I like the name sempervivum: ever alive.
I am not convinced ever alive because it makes offsets counts.
I don’t know what you mean.
They die after flowering, I believe, so I was speculating that the idea of their being ever living was a reference to their ample supply of offsets – the chicks from the folk name – so the plant is alive through its chicks. That might be an illustration of the greatest enemy of knowledge, though…
I love the composition of this photo.
Thank you! 🙂
Interesting photograph. I like this very much.
Nobody so far commented on the little stone face in the top left. I was sure someone would! I think there might be another one next to it.
I take this a sign, and quite a wonderful one: from rocks and cage, sempervivium! Thank you!
Thanks for the poemlet. It does look well placed to make a daring escape. The sempervivum, that is!
A poemlet! What an excellent word!
Nice! We bought a plummy dark-skinned variant of this the other day. It sits atop the patio table at present. Bye for now! Have a good week 🙂 🙂
Sounds lovely! I have a weakness for the blueish ones.
Nice one. And a reminder to see if any of mine have survived the wet!
My fingers are crossed!
Oops, I forgot to look today. Must remember tomorrow.
A good shot
