Pink Saturday - Hen's and Chicks

I thought this would be an interesting thing to post 
for Pink Saturday.

For a few weeks now my hens and chicks has been putting
on a flower stock.  
I have never seen these flower before.
the stock got about 15 inches long and began to bend over.
 In the picture below your seeing the flower opened up and laying
across the flat of plants, if you look at the picture about
mid way between center and the right side you can see the stock.

Wish I had gotten more pictures as it progressed.


Here is a closer view.  Interesting flowers and they are edged in pink.


Closer yet......
look at those little hairs and the flower centers.
Cool aren't they.

A hens and chick plant, close up.
Love the water droplets on it.  
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the flower of this plant.

Please visit Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound
our hostess for Pink Saturday.
God's blessing to you and our country.

Happy Pink Saturday Gail Sweetie...
What a beautiful share. My Moma lives in Oklahoma, and she has always had hens and chickens. I have seen hers bloom. You have to own quite a green thumb. This doesn't happen often that I have seen. I have so enjoyed looking at yours open to the sun. What a beautiful share my friend.

I hope you have a beautiful Pink Saturday. Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you as well.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
