Sempervivum in a cage of rocks

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.

That might be an illustration of the greatest enemy of knowledge, though…

  1. 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 🙂 🙂
