Firmly planted

This little section of our raised garden beds features little shoes and some big shoes too, that have been planted with a variety of hens and chicks. The emperor Charlemagne once decreed these little succulent plants should be planted on thatched roofs to aid in prevention of fires. The baby shoes are at least 4 years old to 7 or 11 years old. The once bright red fire boots were Cedar's classic foot ware for quite a number of years. We had a continual supply of boots. The tulips are in bloom and that is a favorite cradle for the baby fairies to rest in the evening. The gentle swaying of the tulips keeps the babes asleep while the mom's and dad's dance the night away.
