A Colander with Hens and Chicks

kirkus(5a)July 1, 2011

Planted this up yesterday. My wife Carol found this vintage, light blue, enamelware colander for me recently...I used Hens & Chicks in it from our gardens...kind of looks like a salad. :o) ENJOY! Bear Hugs! Kirk

I love that. I have some Hens and Chickens that I need to transplant. I hope mine look half as good as yours.

It does look like a salad. You all have been busy little bees and it really shows in all your projects.

Great colander, thought for a minute you came & got mine- nope, mine is cream & green mottled but otherwise looks the same. I love colanders but I use them to collect stuff from the garden. I do like your "salad" tho. I love blue in the garden, any color of blue looks refreshing against the greens! What kind of bone is that? Looks great with the colander! Jan

Hen & Chicks like sandy soil & little water...hot weather seems ok...but water 1X a wk...I have multitudes of them...you'd think they were related to the bunny species! LOL!

LOVE this colander planted...& the green & blue tog! Carol is a cool lady! TFS! Jeanne S.

That is really nice! Did you like the collander with something? I'd love to do one. I have some H&C that need a new home. Now, to find a collander!
