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.
Sounds useful – I’m going to have to look for that!
Marion: Google Play seems to have it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.likethatapps.garden&hl=en
Tom – I didn’t know that – I’ll check it out. I often see plants I can’t recognize. Same for birds, but at least the plants stay still.
I know it’s available for iOS devices, not sure about Android.
Nicely seen Isabel.
Another theme for a collection: â€œlife out of deathâ€ ?
Jim R – Thanks! Maybe . . .
