Tuesday Yardening

Today is mild, cloudy, and damp.  It rained buckets last night.  \o/

I planted bulbs in the white garden at the end of the driveway.  I put in 1 Allium 'Mount Everest' that will be a big ball of tiny white flowers, like the one I experimented with last year that bloomed so nicely this summer.  I added 10 Scilla siberica 'Alba' which have little white star-shaped flowers.  Finally I planted 10 Iris 'Katharine Gold' which is not actually yellow but instead a miniature iris producing flowers of white and pale green.  I haven't tried this cultivar before, but I love miniature iris.  This concludes the current purchases slated for the white garden.
