On The Rocks, Please!


Imagine these.....

 A very hardy Sedum.


And these....

 Sea lavender.



Growing in a place like this....

'Sophie on the rocks', please!

Well they do!
We visited Peggy's Cove yesterday
and had a fantastic few hours 
on the rocks!

    1. This white granite is everywhere along a portion of this shore, Liz.
      So many different sedums isn't there.

  2. I wouldn't mind a 'Sophie on the rocks'!

    Plants are amazing, aren't they? They'll grow just about anywhere.

    1. I don't think Sophie would mind that one little bit either, Martha! She is very partial to women.
      Yes, plants are pretty determined when they need a place to live and thrive.

  6. I just love sedum - it even grows for me here at altitude. I use it in my rock gardens. Sophie looks like she wants to swim.

    1. And she did Barb! But not in the ocean behind her due to its dangerous rip currents. She swam in the tidal pools in these rocks.
      Sedum must be one of the hardiest plants around.

      These photos are of the South Shore in Nova Scotia....much different from our Eastern Shore where we live. Great contrasts.
