Sunday Yardening

Today is beautiful, sunny and warm.  I started by planting the contorta hazelnut.  :D

White spirea and nannyberry are blooming.  The peonies have buds, and something in the white garden has put up one big bud -- probably the allium.

EDIT 4/23/17: Round 2, Doug put together the plant tower, and we placed it on the septic cap.

EDIT 4/23/17: Round 3, I put protective covers over the contorta hazelnut, and planted the kousa dogwood.

EDIT 4/23/17: Round 4, I put a spiral cover over the kousa dogwood, mulched around it and the contorta hazelnut, and watered plants.

EDIT 4/23/17: Round 5, I put weed killer on weeds in the septic garden.

EDIT 4/23/17: Round 6, I picked up fallen wood in the ritual meadow.  Didn't get it all done, but moved most of the medium-sized pieces, some of which I used to refresh the border around the wildflower garden.  There is still one really big branch that will take more hands to move.
