Today I popped up to the garden and was very much enjoying how great it looks after the Genentech workday. I decided to weed the cactus wall, cut back some Chasmanthe, and noticed a gap along the steps where I'd removed a dead Convulvulus cneorum last weekend.
Having recently (today!) decided that no more plants can be planted at PG unless they come from those waiting on the terraces, I popped back there and chose a variegated Yucca and an Agave of species to be determined and planted them on the steps.
Happily, it's a great time of year to plant those species as they need no water to get started at all.
(Remember folks: we're in a bad drought - year two of it in fact.)
On the way home I deadheaded a dozen Euphorbias at PRG and weeded there too. It's all looking pretty spiffy!
