Some local hazards

Most of my houseleeks have now left their winter dormancy and are growing away well.  The weather however, has been very mixed with a long cold spell followed now by a heatwave.

Last week we had a brisk hail storm and most of the semps had small ice balls wedged between their leaves.  The picture below is of Sempervivum  dzhavachischvilii with a hail stone in the centre of its rosette (it put itself there - no manipulation from me).


Also of interest is another small toadstool that has grown up beside a rosette of Sempervivum 'Rubin'.  Downloading the photo enabled me to spot the houseleek seedling bottom centre of the picture.
