Company Girl Coffee

Hello Company Girls, and all my other friends! I hope your summer is going well. Mine is coming to a close, unfortunately. I go back to teaching full time in less than two weeks. Bummer! The summer has been good, though. My twins turned 14, and we had awesome birthday celebrations, I got to go on vacation to Southern California for a week (during my husband's business trip), and I got a 2-day getaway with my sister. The twins return from their dad's house on Sunday, and I can't wait!

While I was out in California, I snapped this photo because I had never seen a flower like this. I had to touch it to make sure it was real! I asked some readers what it was, and they called it "Hen and Chicks." What was throwing me off was its color, a very deep purple, almost black. Very cool!

Rachel Anne will be back with daily "small things" at Home Sanctuary, and I've missed her! I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. That is a very unusual flower, so interesting! I am ready for Small Things to start up again...I need them!

  2. I really love the color of that flower. I have seen them before but never that color! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  3. Yay it was called Hen & Chicks, who knew I could be helpfull :) So glad your Summer has been so great, bummer it is ending so soon. Man, I thought Summer only went by quickly when you were a kid having to go back to school but I guess it goes quickly for us Mama's too!

  4. I have seen a Hen and Chicks plant before but never in that color. It is quite striking! It would make a lovely addition to any flower bed.

  5. Wow! I have never seen or heard of that flower before! How cool!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
