600 Species - Sedum
Thursday morning here on the deck....lol....yep, I just posted Thursday's blog but I am getting ahead of myself for Friday.
Many, many years ago I worked with a woman in Printing. When I say many years ago I have to tell you it seems like forever ago! I was 18 when Debbie and I started working together. CRAP, that WAS FOREVER AGO (by the way when I all caps I am not yelling at you I just making it known that is important!)......
Anyway, not to regress but Debbie furnished me with lots of plants for my yard when I owned my first house in Hermitage. My ex hubs and Debbie and her hubs would hang together and have dinners together. So that many years ago (and I have been divorced for 28 yrs......just added info for you), Debbie gave me some Sedum from her yard. I planted it on Bonnaside and when I sold and moved to Catskill (street I lived on) I pulled some up and took it with me. When I moved from there to here, I dug some up and brought it with me. So basically the original plant that I started with was planted by me over 30 yrs ago.
Debbie told me then to watch my plant, when it bloomed it always seemed to work out that we would have our first cool snap two weeks later. True to that comment, it has always been such. I have two Sedums now and both are in bloom. In about two weeks if it still holds true here, it will turn off cool. I will do my best to keep you posted.
I have a problem though. My Sedum I started with would bloom a pinky purple color. I love PURPLE, and you all know that. But about 7 yrs ago I was driving from visiting the boys and I spotted a Rusty Reddish Brown color Sedum in someones yard. NO...I did not stop and steal any! But I went straight to Lowe's (hardware store) and found some! My pinky color was in the front yard and my reddish color in the back. When I moved....I brought some straight over and planted it in the flowerbed the other went in a pot.
This is in the pot.
