More Plants Planted

I continued work on the front slope.  The 'Blue Glow' flowers continue to develop.  They are a deep eggplant purple:

This is the work I did, from this...

...using plants that I'm tired of looking at in pots, and that won't grow too large.  Another one-of-everything, PBG, but it doesn't look too bad.  There's a bit more space to plant; I'm still thinking about what to plant there.

  1. The front slope looks wonderful and such a beautiful display of textures and colours you have created with the Yucca 'Bright Star', the aloes and the California poppies, gorgeous!

  2. Your re-do looks good! I'm frequently guilty of using assorted single varieties too (in the interest of conducting a "trial") but, in this case, the repetition of spiky forms helps pull the collection together.

  3. So lovely fresh, the grey Calocephalus and the California poppies! Also the combination with the yellow Aloe is also very nice.
    You did already a good job in your garden. I like the black Aeonium, I suppose this is still there on the background of your new plants.

    1. Thanks, Janneke. Yes, the black Aeonium remains.

  4. A very handsome transformation of the slope. As usual, I'm a little jealous that you can plant out those agaves and aloes. And I'm pleased to see you allow California poppies in your garden, as I never know how Californians feel about them. I think they are such simple and bright fillers. Happy Easter weekend!

    1. Happy Easter to you! I love love love California poppies. Throw seeds around. Done! My sweet peas are a dud again this year (too many heat waves), but the poppies more than make up for that.

    1. I love California poppies, and if they appear in neighbor's yards or in the empty lot down the road...well, they are native!

  6. As usual your photos are fabulous and your work is great. I love that first one, and the orange poppies with the grey plant, a lovely combination.
