Monday Yardening
Today I walked around the yard.  It's getting warm and moist.

There are bees everywhere.  In the wildflower garden, I saw a big bumblebee visiting every flower on this plant.  I saw a small black bee and a tiny metallic green one on the echinacea.  These are probably native species, some of which are rarely seen. All had large panniers of yellow pollen collected from the flowers.  :D  Beeeeeees!

EDIT 7/17/17: Round 2, I picked a few blackberries.

EDIT 7/17/17: Round 3, I planted some morning glories and watered plants.

EDIT 7/17/17: Round 4, I weeded about half of the septic garden.

Septic garden?

Well...

It's around the septic tank. Nothing I tried would grow grass there, so I decided to try some other stuff. Some of it has survived.

Re: Well...

Interesting. What's survived?

Re: Well...

Mints, chives, rhubarb, coreopsis, and sedum weren't nibbled at all. Some of the marigolds survived. Lamb's ear and carnations grew back after getting eaten.
