When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Sempervivum Tectorum

6 Jul 2019 • So...a bit of my wall has fallen out so I thought I’d mend it...with some pieces of #houseleak and see if they’ll live up to their name 😉 or maybe they are just #houseleeks 🙈

I always thought they were called houseleaks because they could mend leaks... but apparently everyone spells it houseleek, though no idea what they have in common with a leek 🧐 To say I am disappointed is an understatement 🤷‍♀️🙄🤷‍♀️🙄🤷‍♀️ @rachelbrooks

I’m sure that’s exactly what the meaning is. We shall call them houseleaks and pooh pooh to those who don’t! 👍🏼😉

One of the advantages of having lots of stone walls. Big disadvantage is they give hiding places for snails 😩 #sempervivum

Love your wall I built a drystone wall round my property in Ireland it's a real artform I watched the masters at work then got stuck in and it's still standing 20 years on 👏💕

Thank you. You're a better woman than me though! I just stood back and watched the master at work. It's a beautiful curved wall that then becomes a moon gate. 🌝 @dbligh
