I too love the variegated stonecrop posted by countrychic. I believe she's posted it before, because I lusted after it then!
I believe the name she gave was Sedum Alboroseum "Mediovariegatum".
I found the note I made. I'm going to be looking for it this year! :)

Nice snaps Kelly. I didn’t know they could be over-wintered.
Brenda, I like your soapwort, it looks nice hanging over the wall.
countrychic, those strawberries look luscious.

Thanks Joan...technically they can't, but I have had some success (okay one year!) They are in a sheltered spot, and get plenty of sun. Withe snow cover, they get well insulated too!!

But then who knows what'll happen this year!
