This barrel’s gutter downspout is often very aggressive and sure enough it hit the rain barrel perfectly. After the downpour (and after work), I got bits of sedum to press into the mud. Hopefully they can root since it’s supposed to be in 80s for a few days longer at least. If you zoom in, you can see I put two rows around each of the rainbow beds on the side slope. You may also note that the zinnias are doing well!! The back bed got smoothed down more by rain. See my previous post for how I continued shaping it on the next day (Friday). So glad I’m almost done with the major earth moving.
