Wednesday Yardening

Today I planted about a dozen daffodils in the prairie garden.  These were a gift from my father, leftovers from his big bags of bulbs for naturalizing.   

My birthday present -- a big bundle of various bulbs -- has not yet arrived.  It claims to have shipped, though.

The blackberry lilies are going to seed.  A few thistle blooms remain, but mostly the thistles are clouds of fluff now.  The frost asters are blooming.  The prairie garden is all over goldenrod, taller than I am and swarming with insects.
