Weekend mularkey

Let's see here... weekend roundup: I've been moving house so getting to the computer has been sporadic. Timelines may be a tad off here too!

Thursday:
Planted some Agave parryi, Agave filifera, and such on the succulent slope. Anna left me some Agapanthus - some are white ones. Hurrah! :)

Saturday:
Came outside to find both wine barrel planters had been tipped over, rolled into the middle of the street (dirt everywhere) and then rolled back. Attempted theft, abandonment, retrieval by someone else? Whoever it was then (probably) went on the steal all the wheels off a car parked in front - left it up on bricks. And likely put a chair that had been on the sidewalk up in a tree a few yards away too...

Went to Lowes for house moving supplies and wire rope and bolts to fasten the planters to the arch. Came home with a dozen Gazanias. Planted them in the front bed. Replanted the wine barrels and swept the street. Feh.

Today:
Went to Lowes again, but came home with a Pennisetum setaceum "Rubrum" for the left bed :) Planted an Arctotis "Peachy Mango" by the Wrong Way sign, and several succulents too, from Leah. Watered the cactus bed and front bed. Emily left me a lovely yellow Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos)!

The garden got some praise this week too: a random guy stopped me on the street to say how much he likes it, and our new neighbor started talking about the garden and saying how great it was before I interjected to tell her, blush, oh... that was our work... :D
