Squee Sunday: chicks



Spring isn-t far away in the Canary Islands




Incidently, it was a bit harder than usual to find these pictures. What do you think happens when you Google “cute chicks”?
So then I tried “chicks and hens”, and got what I wanted, plus a lot of photos like this:

It’s a plant called chicks and hens, which is in the Crassulaceae family, like the aeoniums. (There are lots of aeoniums in the Canary Islands)
