I Declare The Winter Project Complete

And it's not even summer yet!

The slope is now cleaned up, mulched, and planted with Carex testacaea seedlings and a few Agaves that like a bit of shade--attenuata 'Karas Choice', bracteosa, ellemeetiana, gypsophila, 'Streaker'--and some Echeveria offsets.

The Brugmansia stump is gone, the dirt pile is gone, the area is neatly mulched.  I moved 'Lions Rose' away from an engulfing Pittosporum 'Marjorie Channon' and into a decent amount of sunlight,

and nearby plants are now blooming.  Clematis 'Rhapsody':

Iris 'Cobra's Eye':

Hippeastrum 'Apple Blossom', once a single bulb, now eight, each with a bloom stem, each bloom stem with four or five large flowers.

I'm still missing the new 'Reed Avocado', but the spot is ready for it.  I declare the Winter Project complete (enough).  Now up the stairs, past 'Belinda's Dream',

to see what else the puppies have chewed up.
