Thursday Yardening

Today is cloudy, cool, and damp.  It's drizzling, but that didn't stop me from going outside.

I fed the birds.  Yesterday I saw two brown thrashers and a robin under the feeders in the forest garden.  I put out a new thistle sock yesterday too -- the old one got chewed through -- and the finches have already discovered it.  I saw a yellow-bellied woodpecker in the yard today.

My daffodils are blooming, and so are two different colors of miniature iris -- the pale blue I planted previously and the bright violet that are new this year.  :D

A shipment of plants arrived today.  That leaves just one more to come, which I hope will not arrive too soon.  I planted two tayberries (a blackberry relative) in the berry patch at the end of the prairie garden.
