New Plants for Succulent Gardens

I have been looking at the little iron bunny in one of my succulent gardens. It seems to disappear into the soil. Had thought that laying a bed of flat grey rocks for it to sit on. Today when I was visiting the neighborhood nursery, I saw this plant.

I have a rule when purchasing plants. They must be planted the day they are purchased.

Today was unusual because it was and still is raining. Rainfall on the CA Central Coast is a bit of an odd occurrence.

I slipped on my seldom used raincoat, pulled the plants out of the pot…

Aloe

Eight aloe and a cactus.

…and popped them in the garden.

Placed one directly in front of the little iron bunny with two more plants in an imperfect triangle.

Three aloe in a previously open space in the garden.

Two small aloe juxtaposed with some plantlets in the making, all near the memorial bunny.

Cactus

The volunteer cactus could use a dusting.
Tomorrow when it is no longer raining, I will remove the soil from its spines.
