Tuesday Yardening

Today is sunny and warm.

Round One, I went out and trimmed grass around two saplings in the savanna where I will plant bulbs later. 

EDIT 10/8/19: Round Two, I planted 12 narcissus around a sapling in the savanna.

EDIT 10/8/19: Round Three, I planted 5 narcissus around a sapling in the savanna.  This finishes the row of small windbreak trees.

EDIT 10/8/19: Round Four, I planted 8 narcissus around a sapling in the savanna.  That's 25 for today, plus the previous 75, for a total of 100/150.  More or less.  There are actually some bulbs left in the bag.
