Binge planting

(Above: Ursinia anthemoides, Crassula erosula) So today we had to get everything bought yesterday in the ground. Luckily my parents are here and know how to wield a shovel, so we got stuff done.

The top bed get a bit of a makeover - it's mostly red flowering plants, but we added orange Crocosmias to the red ones already there, and two Mimulus - red and yellow.

Then we reorganized the dwarf evergreens (not sure this area was a good idea...), weeded, and Matt did some work with rocks. Starbucks coffee grounds got picked up and added to the compost too. (Above: Greenovia diplocycla, Helichrysum italicum (Curry Plant, Immortelle.) Below: Sedum spirium)

Only Hemerocallis, yellow Crocosmia and Hymenocallis bulbs to plant still.

We had visitors too - Ron and Tank (arch almost complete!) and Dorothy and her dog Bella came by. I've met Bella before (with Dorothy's employee walking her) and she is a peach of a dog: gorgeous and well-behaved - and a rescue! Later on, Dorothy's husband Doug came by with Bella too. Lovely to meet you all!
