I have delighted in houseleeks for some 60 years and have a modest collection at my home in East Sussex, UK. These pages will be used to try and share some of the pleasure I get from these small plants with their infinite variations on a theme and tolerance of neglect.

Still more on lacrimae rerum
It rained last night and this morning many houseleek rosettes were sparkling with water drops.
This cultivar is called 'Virgil', the name of the Roman poet who wrote the phrase sunt lacrimae rerum, 'there are tears in things'.
