One of my favorite things—seeing how the plants I've chosen have grown and filled a space. These plants were installed less than a year ago and already the Oxalis vulcanicola 'Molten Lava' is tumbling over the concrete wall and will continue to do so. The aeoniums are quietly thriving among the oxalis. And the Woodwardia fimbriata looks pretty darn good considering the drought. I'm looking forward to seeing this space again, after we've had some winter rain.
