Live Forever!

Following on from my Garden makeover blog- i wanted jsut to draw your attention to these 2 little pots which im rather fond of.

They are full of houseleeks or Sempervivums to give them their latin name- which means ever living- in reference to the fact they can survive in very little soil.

These guys came from Columbia road and I grow them on my kitchen and living room window sills as they are very drought tolerant- but pulled a few rosettes off to plant up in their own little pots for my front window.

In europe they are often grown on the tile roofs of houses to prevent lightning hitting the house apparently- but i think they look beautiful!
