Hey Ven...great minds think alike. I have some rock planters potted up with various sedum, hen and chicks, and thrift. Just no pics yet. Too busy digging out tree roots on the other side of my yard. :(

ok...finally got around to taking pics of those planters...if you look closely, you can see an iron grasshopper in the middle of the large planter and an ant beside the small one.

those plants are so neat!!
I can't seem to find hens and chicks anywhere here!
I'd really like to do a planter in an old boot or shoe and put it on my front steps with them in it....sigh.
