Plants planted.

We've planted most of the new plants that we got this weekend. In the foreground is one of the new ones, an Indian Mallow. It's in our 'dry wash' section, which includes some other plants that want good drainage or are more 'desert-y'.

Behind it but right before the mulch is our Calliandra, a fairy duster plant, also a new acquisition. (A manzanita is in between).

More plants! More! More!

Dave and I did another jaunt to Theodore Payne yesterday. We came home with more Heuchara, various sages, sagebrushes, and more. Hopefully we'll get them in the ground today.

The native plant garden tour is April 12/13 of next year. I'm hoping (more hope!) that we'll be able to participate in 2009.

Rigel had an exciting day yesterday. He got chittered at by a very cute squirrel who was on a branch of the pine tree; Rigel was outraged. He's not too fond of our urban wildlife. He's seen a raccoon and a baby opussum as well. I'm sure as our plants grow we'll get more mammals as well as birds and insects.
