Front bed: sorted

Plant macros - I don't care who thinks they're played out when they look like this gorgeous Agave parryi, left!

Today was a little hectic due to one thing and another, but in between the insanity (which caused me to miss an important brunch I had been looking forward to) I managed to get the front bed sorted out. We planted:

- 6 Gazania "Daybreak Mix"
- 6 Gazania "Fiesta Red"
- 6 Gazania "Daybreak Red Stripe"
- 6 Achillea millefolium "Cerise Queen"
- 6 Salvia "Blue Victoria"

All perennials - with a bit of luck I won't have to redo this bed again for a while and it will look good in September for the Garden Tour. Yeah! Matt moved the Evening Primroses to make room. They sulked a bit bit I think they'll make it.

Expert plant hunter Channing also dropped off some more plants today! 2 Agave americana, an Aeonium, a ponytail palm (Beaucarnea recurvata) and 4 tall spiky cacti. Thanks Channing! They're going to be wonderful for the succulent slope which is slowly beginning to take shape... *rubs hands in glee*
