Today I laughed really hard.
My husband was getting ready for work and I was trying to make some small talk, so I thought I would tell him about how my lovely sempervivum plants, otherwise known as “hen & chicks” were coming. I was quite pleased because I counted 23 new baby plants that popped up, so I told him, “I have twenty-three hen and chicks on the way!”
The look on my man’s face was priceless- a mix of shock, horror, confusion and the clear question of whether or not I had lost my mind.
I interpreted this look in seconds, and quickly clarified by adding to my previous statement: “those plants over there are referred to as hen and chicks, and they are growing little, baby plants. I did not mean real chickens.”
He insists I did it on purpose, but I didn’t.
It made my evening though. Ha!
(These aren’t my hen and chicks pictured- I just want to do this design some day- sure is pretty! What a great use of the top of a low fence!)
