Thursday Yardening

Today is sunny and sweltering.

Round 1, I planted mint seeds and chive seeds in the septic garden. 

EDIT 5/18/17: Round 2, I planted mountain mint, New Jersey tea, wild quinine, and obedient plant in the wildflower garden. This concludes the planting of wildflowers from the native plant sale.  I still have half a dozen pots of native grass to put out.

The farmer east of us has lit fires to burn off the stalks piled up by the recent flooding.  The wind is wrong, so I can't smell them, but the flames are very bright orange against the blue shadows of dusk.

Thunderclouds are starting to pile up in places.  There's a chance of rain tonight and over the weekend.
