Scavenger Hunt - The Theme is "Flowers"

These are not really flowers but a plant called Hens and Chicks.
(I think...)
They look so much like flowers, that I decided
to use them in the flower theme.
I think they are beautiful, almost like a lotus.

What a pretty plant; it does look like flowers. I don't do the scavenger hunt, but I'm dropping by to wish you a happy weekend!

Yes Barbara - they are hens and chicks - I'm almost sure they are purple haze. They're a outdoors border plant.
I took this picture in early April.

Pat said...

You're right - they are beautiful! What an unusual plant.

Connie and Rob said...

Oh my gosh I love them. I have a few growing and spreading a bit but not as pretty as these. I could only wish...

Have a great weekend.

You mean these beautiful things are not flowers? They all look beautiful not to be called flowers.

Mine is up too.

Viamarie said...

G'day Liberty Belle

My dad had these in our garden when I was a kid. He had used them as a flower bed border.

This was an unusual one for me, never seen it before. Never the less very beautiful - and goes very well with your blog design I think :-)

It's so wonderful with flowers (or plants) because there is such a big variation. The miracle of life.

Hoppas du får en dejlig weekend :-)

They are hens and chicks, but you could also call them "sempervivum". A lot of them actually do bloom. The centre part grows really tall and they get little flowers at the top.

Such beautiful plants. Now I'm jealous. (Seriously, I love sempervivum.)

Melli said...

Aren't they in the catus family? Or am I thinking of something else? They are neat! I saw some at the garden center the other day... they are pretty!
