Thursday Yardening

Today was warm and muggy earlier, but turned mild and pleasant in the evening, except for bugs.  I watered plants, fed birds, and picked a handful of mulberries.  Barely any blackberries this year.  :/  Blackberry lilies are blooming.  One big red zinnia bloomed where I planted flower seeds in the prairie garden, but not much else is growing there.  Cup plants have buds in the prairie garden.  Yellow wildflowers are blooming in the wildflower garden.  I saw a nest of baby robins.
