Wednesday Yardening

Today is cooler, gray, and damp.  It rained a little last night.

I planted two batches of bulbs, for a total of ten, each one a different cultivar.  Six warm-colored ones went beside the barrel garden.  Four black ones went in the tulip garden beside the parking lot.  That's all I have for now that's slated for those locations.

I still have a big bag of stuff for the wildflower garden.  That was the largest batch.

A few more birds have been fluttering around the feeders.  I saw a sparrow on the hopper feeder yesterday.  Today I saw finches around the fly-through feeder.  If I keep seeing finches, I may put up a thistle sock.  I don't always, because the bird population varies and thistle is expensive, but when we have lots of finches then it's worthwhile.
