Pots in the ground. I filled the pots with just under 2 litres of water a piece. They are about 1/2 full this morning, so I figure they will need to be filled every other day while the weather is somewhat cooler. We are getting a very nice gentle rain right now so this schedule for filling is only speculation. I am going to cover the holes with rocks to cut down on evaporation and mosquito larve.
This pot did not get into the ground till early evening. It was filled at the same time as the others. The water had leached 6 inches into the ground when I dug the hole, about the same amount as the water level inside the pot. If all goes well, when all the pots are in it should only take a little over 15 gallons of water a week for the 2 beds. We shall see.

|This is the first year the Spanish Lavender was put in.|
And this is what the west corner looks like now...

Speaking of Pansies...

And this is what it looks like now....

New flower beds are going in this evening! In the above photo you can see the markings for the edge of the path. Will post more photos later, this is a somewhat long process as I think through things very thoroughly.
Been thinking on this for a few years now, and now is the time to do it!
Well that's about it for now. Have a good one!
