A couple of plants have been duly installed in the South Border in the wake (sorry, I had to make the pun) of my poor Chrysactinia mexicana, which proves to have a reputation for not transplanting well. Aside from the loss of a much-loved plant which I hope to replace shortly, I am happy with the way things are shaping up. But, as I say, I have been dawdling in the garden.
So today I planted Harry Butterfield in a fit of relaxation. I am by no means sure that he would survive conditions in the open garden, so an available shallow pot was used. Harry is a Sedeveria, a Sedum x Echeveria cross: promising, as another such cross produced the wonderful variety "Sorrento". As you can see, Harry came in quadruplet form.
Hopefully, I will soon have more holes dug and plants planted; but in the meantime it's pleasant to think that I got something valuable done in the garden today...
By the way, WordPress still apparently believes I am a spammer, so to my WP friends - please bear with my invisibility (and do occasionally look for remarks in your spam boxes!).
