Hens and Chicks Blossoms......

This is a cluster of flowers on a Hens and Chicks plant. I never knew them to bloom before. But as I promised, once they opened, I would share the blossom with all of you. They start out with this long protrusion from the center of the plant. Eventually you see a cluster of buds form. Finally, the blossoms open. Not much to look at but definitely, different! 
Here they are in all their pink and rose glory. Okay, so they aren't the prettiest bloom you have ever seen. But I did say I would share, so here it is. Personally, I find them a bit ugly on the plant and I am pretty sure if any more start to form, will cut them off.
They just really don't add anything to my patio garden.
Till next time.....
