Monday Yardening

Today is sunny and warm with a little breeze.  The air smells intensely of lilacs.

I planted a Carolina allspice in the forest garden and a Kiowa blackberry in the blackberry patch. 

EDIT 5/7/18: We picked up sticks from the house through part of the south lot.  Then Doug mowed the cleared area.

EDIT 5/7/18: I planted two lilacs between the forest yard and the south lot.  That's the last of the stuff from Michigan Bulb Company.  \o/

EDIT 5/7/18: I trimmed grass around the telephone pole and its support wire.  The lilies are coming up around the pole again, which I didn't really expect.  I also planted more morning glories and some moonflowers around the wire.

Pink chives are blooming in the septic garden.  The first of the alliums in the purple-and-white garden are opening, pretty purple flowers.  The columbine in the rain garden has buds.
