Hens and Chicks

My mother-in-law was in town a few weeks ago. I mentioned that I really like the Hen and Chick succulent plants, so she plucked one from her daughter’s rock garden and stuffed it in a shell with a spot of dirt. I took it home and put it in the kitchen window so I wouldn’t forget to give it water.

Since then, I have seen several terrariums with these plants. I want to try and create my own terrarium this weekend, but for now, a haiku will suffice.

Today’s Haiku:

swollen leaves
snuggling withย the sandy earthโ€”
warm from the sun


Has anyone made a terrarium with Hens and Chicks?
