weekend flower sightings

a shopping trip today took me away from my neighborhood and out to lower, dryer elevations. my heart fairly sang when i saw these diminutive flowers outside a gift shop, not even crocus or daffodil, which i might have expected, but glory-of-the-snow and a sweet miniature iris.
and these amazing little hens and chickens have changed my mind about this common plant. i love the tiny pink stems on those baby plants and the two complimentary shades of spring green. i mean to find some i can call my own!

It is so good to take time to see the littleness in life. Much of the time we overlook beautiful little gems.

You call them Hens & Chickens, we call them Houseleeks!

I love them, you can get so many different varieties.

I really like the last plant to and have never seen anything like it. You must definitely get one. Isn't it great to see the colors of all the other ones? I'm glad you're enjoying it so.
