If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Bet You Don't.....

I'll bet you don't know what this plant is called.......well maybe you do but I sure didn't until just recently.
Take a guess of what this is by leaving a comment.  Don't cheat by looking it up on the Internet...LOL
 Those who get it right will be put in my "HAT" for a quick give-away which is a surprise.

When I was growing up we called them Hens and Chickens. I have no idea where that came from though!

My grandmother had these and called them Hens and Chicks. Saw that on the package you received the other day. They are wonderful and give me those warm fuzzy feelings!

Tudy said...

I have them and we call them Hens and Chicks.

Yep, Hens and Chicks. We had them is special pots where you would plant a hen in a carved out space on the pot and then she would reproduce chicks there. There would be several of those carved out places so one got lots of little chicks.

We call them hen and chicks here, too. And you can take a chick and plop it in a new pot and let it grow to become a hen and have more chicks!!!

The common name is hens and chicks. They are a succulent. Latin name is crassulaceae.

I set out one year to learn the latin names of the plants in my yard. *LOL*

I don't know the scientific name, but we called them hens and chickens. Very easy to grow!

These are called Hens & Chickens. I had them in my garden when I lived in Maine. The Hen (mother plant) puts out lots of baby chickens every year that you can share with friends so they can start their own little patch. They are easy care and so sweet to have!

More of us know the answer that you realized - Hens & chicks.

Around here we call those Hens and Chicks. My step mother took one of my dads old work boots and cut holes in different areas then planted those coming out of the holes. Looked great!

Patty said...

I've always known them as Hens and Chickens, at one time I knew their scientific name but couldn't begin to tell you,unless I looked it up.

Pokey said...

We say Hens and Chicks, too.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
