...of spring! I see them on my daily walks - the trees thinking about blossoming, the tulips (those not chopped off by bunnies yet) have pushed their leaves through the brown, crocus are up, birds are singing and building nests, all sorts of things are venturing forth to bring green and glorious colors to our lives. Being from the Midwest, I've lived with and love every season, and they're very delineated where I live, definite spring, summer, fall, winter. Which season do I love the most? Honestly, whichever season I'm experiencing. They all have their singular beauty, which is what makes each one so unique and exciting.
Do you know what these are? Some call them stonecrop or sedum. They're in the succulent family. We had a slew of them growing up that Mom got from her father. My grandfather, Papu Ben, called them lifferevvers (at least that's how I heard it when I was a kid), and Mom called them frog bellies. A little known property of stonecrop or sedum or lifferevvers - they make a frog belly if you know how to do it. I challenge you to figure out the frog belly in the stonecrop :-) Have fun doing it! Helpful hint - you need a mature leaf and tenderness and patience. Good luck!
