I fed the birds. I've seen several finches on the thistle sock today.
I planted two bunches of globe allium in the purple-and-white garden.
EDIT 4/28/19: Round Two -- I planted a black-eyed susan in the wildflower garden and another in the prairie garden.
I saw a robin, a pair of brown-headed cowbirds, and a brown thrasher around the feeders in the forest garden.
EDIT 4/28/19: Round Three -- I planted a purple coneflower in the wildflower garden and another in the prairie garden.
EDIT 4/28/19: Round Four -- I planted two blazing stars in the forest garden. That's the last of the things from the plant swap. I still have most of a flat of plants from the sale, which I put outside to start the hardening off process.
EDIT 4/28/19: Round Five -- After supper, I went back out to water plants and mulch around the ones in the prairie garden. As it is now dark, I am done for the night.
I saw a mourning dove eating out of the thistle sock. Normally they are ground feeders, although they like the fly-through feeder because they can stand in it. This one was perched on a branch below the sock, and was tall enough to reach the bottom of the sock. LOL I had no idea that doves even liked thistle seed. Usually they go for millet or sunflower seeds.
