I know, I know, I said we were almost done a week ago.  But really, we are now almost done.  I'd say at least 75% of the plants are in the ground.

This was just a sampling, waiting on our hill for planting day.  I love the combination of the silver heather and the golden heather.  You can also see some teucrium in the upper left, pulmonaria with the gray-green leaves, a few chamaecyparis "mops" (the ever"green" with the yellow foliage), bergenia, a flat of a couple of different saxifraga (Aureopunctata and Maroon Beauty), and a flat of Autumn Joy sedum.  Most of those are now planted in the rock garden.

The pond pump, which has been the holdup for this stage of the project, is hopefully arriving today, the sod will be laid Wednesday, the rest of the plants will get here Thursday, and the final dressing of mulch will happen on Friday.

The reunion starts Monday.  Nothing like cutting it close.
