Thursday Yardening

Today is sunny, breezy, and much colder -- a beautiful fall day. :D Birds are much more active at the feeders. I saw two goldfinches, a lady cardinal, and a house finch. Robins are fluttering around the patio too.

I planted 25 Giant Yellow Jonquils for Naturalizing in the streetside yard, within view of the driveway.  These are in fact naturalized into the forest setting there.  \o/  Digging after yesterday's copious rain is much easier than when the ground is hard and dry.

EDIT 10/11/18 -- I planted  20  Technicolor Daffodil Mixture in the savanna. Some went in a ring around the contorta hazelnut, and the rest around the redbud tree. I am almost done planting the bulbs I got from my father. I just have the Spanish bluebells left.
