Rain stopped just long enough to dig up some more of the small plants in the dry bed. Have finished with the echeverias and it is onto the alpines. I have built up a nice collection of sempervivums over the last couple of years. I am going to have to decide if I take some from each variety or only those that have proved themselves. I have used pups off some of the more prolific forms to fill gaps in the rest of the bed.
One more of these and I should have most of the varieties I am interested in and then it is just mopping up the odd plant that I have missed.
