Hen & Chicks

This also known as a “Purple Beauty” has appropriately, dark purple leaves tinged with green centres depending on how much sun it gets. These guys are extremely easy to propagate - I’ve already pulled out a lot of “chicks” because this was getting so incredibly crowded.

The Kooks - Around Town

But all I need is somewhere to lay
Somewhere to lay my head on
I need someone to love in the middle of the day
I want someone to be
And someone to drive around town
I need someone to love when the chips are down

“ When I was a younger man, art was a lonely thing. No galleries, no collectors, no critics, no money. Yet, it was a golden age, for we all had nothing to lose and a vision to gain. Today it is not quite the same. It is a time of tons of verbiage, activity, consumption. Which condition is better for the world at large I shall not venture to discuss. But I do know that many of those who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where we can root and grow. We must all hope we find them. ”
