We have sempervivum (hen and chickens) in several places around our yard. We like them because they are always green, regardless of the weather or season (‘sempervivum’ means ‘always alive’). One thing we didn’t know was that the hens, just before they die out and are replaced by chickens, flower. The flowers are small and delicate, but still beautiful. I got this photo of a flowering hen in out front yard.

Several years ago Betsy and I were sitting on a rock along Cane Creek in Fall Creek Falls State Park between the cascade and the waterfall. The creek wasn’t very deep, but the water was rushing over and around boulders and ledges. I tried to capture all that frenetic action, and this is the result.
