Planting Continued

I continued planting the things I had bought at Eastern Market and Telly's yesterday afternoon until it finally - mercifully - began to rain. It was a short but heavy shower, and luckily followed by several more over the course of the night. Even before the rain started, though, I was able to get quite a few things into the ground, so here is a continuation of yesterday's list:

1 Begonia grandis (Hardy begonia)
1 Anthemis tinctoria 'Susanna Mitchell' (Marguerite daisy)
1 Lobelia x speciosa 'Fan Blue' (Blue cardinal flower)
1 Salvia verticillata 'Purple Rain' (Whorled clary/lilac sage)
1 Helianthemum 'Peach Double' (Sun rose)
1 Helianthemum 'Wisley Primrose' (Sun rose)
1 Ratibida pinnata (Gray-head prairie coneflower)
1 Liatris spicata 'Kobold' (Gay feather)
1 Sempervivum arachnoideum (Cobweb hen and chicks)
1 Thymus x citriodorus 'Variegata' (Variegated creeping lemon thyme)
1 Lavandula angustifolia 'Potpourri White' (White lavender)
12 Tagetes erecta 'Marvel Orange' (African marigold)
6 Cosmos sulphureus 'Cosmic Red' (Yellow cosmos)
6 Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sonata Mix' (Cosmos)
20 Antirrhinum majus 'Rocket Mix' (Snapdragon)
1 Lantana camara 'Bandana Peach' (Lantana)

With the ground now softened by rain it should be much easier to get the other new additions planted and I will also be able to divide and move around a few things in that sun-baked, clay-y border along the front of the house.
