Another productive day, part deux.

Today Emily and I did a few tasks in the hot February sun (apologies to the non-Californians!):

- Watered various plants that were planted or moved this weekend.
- Planted Senecio cylindricus (Narrow-Leaf Chalksticks) by the octopus agave in the cactus wall bed.
- Moved 3 beautiful but unidentified spotted Aloes in the middle back bed, and added a large and also unidentified Aeonium and a Blue Fescue (Festuca glauca) to the arrangement. Removed four common or garden Aeoniums that we are overrun with. (before and after pics, left)

- Chatted with Gary about the Maverick's surf competition
- Planted a Pennisetum setaceum rubrum (Purple Fountain Grass) "Red Riding Hood" in the left bed's grass area.
- Planted a Mangave "Macho Mocha" in the back middle bed.
- Brought lots of plants over from my house for the sale
- Talked about the best shrub/low tree for the center of the middle back bed.

It's been a crazy busy weekend, but we have lots still to do!
