Succulent, White Lake ON

I’m sure the gardener responsible told me the name of this succulent: It might be one of the “hens and chicks” varieties, but I wouldn’t swear to it.

In any event, I like it for its slight unexpectedness: its “life out of death” motif.  I know that dead logs rot, so something is drawing nutrients from them, but to see a plant planted on one, and doing fine, was just that little bit unexpected.

    Did you know there’s a “LikeThat Garden” app available for smart phones? You can hold your phone to the plant or flower, snap a picture, and it will identify the name. In some cases, there might be a couple of options, but generally the app is right on.

    I know it’s available for iOS devices, not sure about Android.

    Nicely seen Isabel.
    Another theme for a collection: “life out of death” ?
