Another hot day, though not as hot as last week thank goodness...

Put in the ground today:
- 4 clumps of (probably?) Common Dog-violet (Viola riviniana) - finally I moved the ones in full sun, and made a row of violets leading down the steps. They. Are. Cute.
- 1 Euryops (Yellow Bush Daisy)
- 1 clump of Dietes
- 1 Monarda citriodora (Lemon Mint)
- 1 Leonotis (Lion's Ear or Lion's-Tail)
- Several Aloe arborescens clumps
- 1 pink Cistus
- 1 Opuntia
- 1 Cordyline

I also:
- Weeded the front bed and the Canna bed
- Added horse poo to the compost heap (Jim added household scraps too)
- Watered the weedy compost pile in hopes that it will vanish faster
- Moved a clump of Agapanthus
- Moved a wheelbarrow load of mulch to the Canna bed (wheelbarrow needs some maintenance - bolt missing!)
- Staked a Euphorbia
- Flagged baby Nasturtiums on the back slope so they don't get crushed
- Moved some Crocuses to the front of their bed so next year they don't spring up randomly everywhere.

I'm knackered! Top: The front bed - P. Garden looks good from a low angle so far, and this gives an impression of the Corn Marigolds (Chrysanthemum segetum), Nasturtiums and orange California poppies. Bottom: The left bed with lots of new Dietes clumps.
