A Home for Hens & Chicks

Feb
27

There came a day when we had this awesome stump.

And the awesome stump sat around for awhile and then!

Look at that!

Suddenly everyone’s giving me hens and chicks lately. I love hens and chicks. I didn’t have any. Now I have ’em all over the place! And I love them in this stump best of all.

I love how they’re nestled into little nooks all over it. Might drill some holes to add even more!

    What a neat idea Suzanne! I love this! I had a large stump that my husband drilled out and I planted wave petunias in it. The flowers looked so pretty against the weathered wood.
    I’ll be trying this with the chicks and hens! :) :happypuppy:

    I so agree this is so nice if I only had a place to do something
    like this.

    I love this! What a great idea! I am definitely going to try it in the spring with a couple pieces of driftwood. (If we ever see bare ground again that is)

    That’s a great place to put hens & chicks, Suzanne. Love the idea! Mine are in 2-strawberry pots…I’ve had them for years. Hubby puts the pots in the garage for the winter months (Michigan-zone 5) and we put them out in the spring. I love my hens & chicks, too.

    I love it when this happens! And I love that the hens and chicks just “come back” every year!

    If I don’t get outside and plant something,I’m going to go crazy! Something about this time of the year just makes me want to dig in the dirt!

    I love this idea! I have them in a very dry corner of my yard, and they’ve spread like wildfire. I don’t really have a rock garden, but the stump is just as good, and we might even have one laying around! They bloom every once in a while, too, which is really cool. I hope you show more pictures as they grow.

    Love it!!! I need to replant some of mine this year. They are spilling from buckets and barrels around here. I love the stump idea. Wonder if my goats would be willing to give up their jumping stump!

    That looks really good. But my husband would want to split that root up for the wood stove. It’s fat wood…

    Your Hens and Chicks log is wonderful and is only going to get better with time :D I love Hens and Chicks too and have found a very cute way to share them. I use a cardboard egg carton, place a little potting soil in each cup and then put a little “Chick” on top, tie with a cute ribbon and you have an instant gift. :wave:

    I love your log. I love love Kathy’s idea of chicks in an egg carton as a gift. The best is for us here who are still under 3 feet of snow to get a glimps of spring. You know when the snow melts off my hen and chicks will be waiting for me. Again thanks Suzanne for sharing what you share.

    I haven’t seen hens and chicks since I was a kid and my mom had them growing in the ‘recycled’ oil pan from an automobile. I like you stump!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
