Wednesday Yardening

Today is cloudy and cooler with intermittent rain.  I got out to plant some milkweed seeds.  There's a patch by the edge of the prairie garden with a bunch of thistles.  I'm hoping to let that grow, and mow just beyond them, in hopes they'll seed into the newly mowed area for next year.  So I added some milkweeds too.  We used to have a bunch of these, but now it's mostly goldenrod instead.  :/

I fed the birds.  I've been watching the goldfinches today.  They keep getting chased off the thistle sock by the house finches.  Also there's a robin building a nest in the birdgift tree.
