THE LAST PLANT IS PLANTED!!!
This morning was reasonably cool, and while the area was in the shade of a big juniper tree, I decided to work a while on the retaining wall for the Red Fountain Grass. The retainer went together much faster than I thought. I was expecting to work on it a while today, then to add to it over the next two or three days, but I couldn't believe how well it fell into place. It seems I had picked out the perfect collection of stones, as they went into place without me having to reset even one. Talk about dumb luck!
I was able to put all the stones together, add dirt and gravel while sprinkling to fill the cracks between stones, and then fill the newly created receptacle and plant the grass in about an hour! I was warm, but not miserably hot, and not too tired, either!
Here is the grass with a Red Hot Poker in the background.
The grass with a spray of water on it and the sun catching the spray.
One of my cacti is blooming. I love the blossoms.
The Spanish broom is blooming! Yay!!
A broom blossom against the sky. These smell so sweet, very delicate and so nice.
I'm going to go and get ready now to go into town to see Sandy's demonstration at the art show and then we are going to meet Linda for dinner. I'll talk to you guys later.
