Saturday Yardening

Today is cloudy and dim, mild with a blustery breeze.  A wall of rainclouds is blowing in.  It was starting to sprinkle when I went outside. 

This time I put out the bulbs intended for the goddess garden.  I planted 10 Hyacinthoides hispanica in mixed colors, also known as wood hyacinth or Spanish bluebells.  I also set out 10 Eranthis cilicica,  aka winter aconite or buttercup.  I first tried them last year in the same location, now adding more because I love their cheerful yellow flowers which bloom even before the snow crocus.

So that's a second garden done, out of the current batch of bulbs to be planted.  \o/
