Friday Yardening

First round: trimmed grass around two saplings in the savannah.

Penstemon is blooming in my wildflower garden.  Mine has stubby white flowers.

EDIT:
Second round: trimmed grass around three more saplings in the savannah.

Privet is blooming by the house.  Crabapples and apricot have green fruit.  Mulberries and serviceberry have fruit starting to turn pink.

Third round: trimmed grass around three more saplings in the savannah.  Discovered that one which got eaten earlier has evidently resprouted.

Fourth round: sprayed weed killer on poison ivy and thistles in forest yard, savannah, and prairie garden.  Now I am out of weed spray and need to get more.

Some raspberries are starting to show pink.  Blackberries are still blooming.

Fifth round: picked up pile of raked grass so Doug could haul it away.  Mulched around four saplings in savannah.

Sixth round: mulched around three more saplings in the savannah.  Watered container plants.

And now it's dark outside.  *goflopnow*
