Saturday Yardening

Today is mostly sunny and warm.  I planted white prairie clover, purple prairie clover, great blue lobelia, and cardinal flower in the wildflower garden.

I also noticed that another of my oak seedlings is leafing out, so at least two are still alive.  \o/  Lilacs and honeysuckles are blooming.  Raspberries have buds.

I saw the first monarch butterfly today, too.

EDIT 5/5/18: I planted the last two wildflowers in the prairie garden.  Doug and I cleaned up the area between the mulberry by the garage and the house, and I put down grass seed there.  The seeder is working better today -- it may have been wet yesterday, or just overloaded.
