Monday Yardening

Today I planted 10 Eranthis cilicica  (bright yellow) in the goddess garden, and 20 'Katharine Hodgkin' iris (pale blue speckled with yellow) in the goddess garden and wildflower garden.   Recent rain has made the ground much easier to dig.

This concludes my current batch of bulbs, and I have no active plans to buy more this season.  I will, however, keep an eye out for bargains.  Stores often close out their bulbs for $1-2 per bag in late October or November.

It's a warm, blustery day today.  The tiny asters are still blooming in the wildflower garden.  Most of the seedpods on the blackberry lilies have opened and been distributed, either planted in my own gardens or handed off to my parents.
