Planting Hens and Chicks Outside My Winter House

It's always a joy to see beautiful potted plants displayed around the farm during the warm season.

Every year, I take out many of my outdoor ornamental urns and fill them with plants. They do so well outside in the summer months and look great arranged around my home. This week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, planted the troughs in front of my carport with various hens and chicks - those charming mat-forming succulents with fleshy pointed leaves arranged in rosettes. These plants are among the first I see when I walk out of the house and some of the last I see when I return.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
