Saturday Yardening

Today it is very soggy outside.  I managed to get out between rain showers and plant two of the plants I got yesterday -- a German thyme and a burgundy columbine.

My white columbine is blooming in the rain garden.

Also yesterday my parents gave me a belated birthday card listing a present which will arrive some time in autumn: 100 bulbs worth of flower garden.  :D  Daffodils, hyacinths, crocus, windflowers, and a few others. 

EDIT: This evening I went out to refill the birdfeeders.  I've been seeing more blue jays around the hopper feeder.  One of the lady cardinals immediately came to the suet feeder.

Frogs and toads are singing out where the fields are flooded with rainwater.
