Friday Yardening

Today is mild and gray.  My cornelian cherry dogwood is blooming in the streetside yard.  Near the daffodil garden by the parking lot, far from where I had planted any, a dark purple miniature iris is blooming.  Go figure.

I fed the birds.  I saw a female downy woodpecker today.  :D

I planted and mulched 3 blackberry plants at the end of the prairie garden.  I hope to get back out for another round of planting later in the day.

EDIT 4/5/19: I went back out and planted a red oak in the treeline that divides the savanna from the prairie garden.  The old trees there are mulberries and maples, not in good shape, so I'm trying to refresh the treeline with more durable species.

I feel all accomplished now.  \o/
