Friday Yardening

Today we went out erranding.  It's been raining off and on for much of the day.  \o/  Weather is warm and damp at the moment with sun coming out.  I bought some plants, a couple more thymes and a gorgeous purple sedum.  I may go outside presently and try planting those. 

EDIT 6/30/17: I planted a Red Canyon sedum in the purple-and-white garden. It's really pretty, although more of a soft lavender than red.  (There is genuinely red sedum.)  I hope it is as unpalatable to wildlife as the other sedum I have.

Japanese beetles are eating the barrel garden.  >_<  I cannot dust them in wet weather.  This displeases me.

EDIT 6/30/17: I planted two German thymes in the Goddess garden.  That's eight in total, which fills the ring nicely.  \o/

EDIT 6/30/17: I put out more saucers under potted plants.  Then I cut low branches from the forest garden.

It's still warm and damp out.  The sky is partly clear, but with gray and white clouds like long skeins of wool.  The corn is just beginning to tassel and I can smell it faintly on the breeze.  In another day or few it will be heavy and golden in the air.
