Thursday Yardening

Today is warm and gray.  It rained thoroughly last night, so the ground is diggable again.  \o/

I went out and worked in the purple-and-white garden near the patio.  I planted one Allium 'Globemaster' which is a fist-sized bulb that will put up a softball-sized sphere of tiny purple flowers.  I also set out four Camassia leichtlinii, which will have spikes of starry lavender flowers.

When I went outside, a squirrel scampered away from the picnic table.  They've been cracking nuts on one bench.
