Tuesday Yardening
Today Doug helped me by digging holes, so we got all six of the Canadian hemlock shrubs planted and mulched.  I also cut a bunch of milk jugs into plant protectors.

I've seen several butterflies today.  White cabbage butterflies, also something small and orange.  Lots of ladybugs and worms while we were digging.

*gasp pant wheeze* *goflopnow* 

EDIT: Picked up the tree wraps from the post office.  Put the first batch of those on seedlings.  

The serviceberry tree now has its white blossoms.  Pretty.  Lilacs and elderberry are leafing out.

This time of year is so lovely...we've got monarch butterflies laying eggs on our non-native milkweed and the native milkweed seedling are sprouting in their tiny greenhouse my daughter set up. Salamanders waking up and creeping around the herb bed. Could do without the mockingbird that insists on trying to attract a mate at midnight, though... ;)

I saw red admirals and cabbage whites today.

I haven't seen salamanders around here, though.
