The Hens and Chicks do winter over very nicely. I take them out of their pots, which are pottery or terra cotta, which will not survive the winter, and put them in the ground. They turn a lovely bronzy color and green up as soon as it gets warm.
I like the way this brilliant blue strawberry jar looks with the succulents. We have a fabulous nursery in nearby Brookfield, Shakespeare's Garden, that has a wonderful selection of succulents. I strive to get a variety of style and colors, some hanging , some upright, some bluish some yellowy. I very seldom water them, but I did give them a drizzle today and that's what you see on the ground.
The jar is at the end of my narrow front porch, next to the driveway. Last year I had it on the front deck, but I like it better here. This is a view from the other side.
This is a favorite of mine. How fabulous is that brilliant yellow-green?! It will start spilling over the lip soon.
