The Deceased
I’ve lost the following plants. Actually, I spent too little time observing them, to know when they needed some water or minor care…all but the last were bought at Flora Grubb a week before moving south –
‘Golden Joy’ Queen’s Tears / Billbergia ‘Golden Joy’
‘Purple Passion’ Hens & Chicks / Sempervivum ‘Purple Passion’
Spiderweb Hens & Chicks / Sempervivum arachnoideum
Common or Bush Thyme / Thymus vulgaris
