Wednesday Yardening

Today is cloudy and warm.

Round One, we looked at things in the prairie garden and decided how to handle them. 

I also fed the birds.  There was a red-winged blackbird in the forest garden today.  :D  They're smaller than grackles, and the grackles chased him away, but it was pretty to watch him fly.  

My celandine poppy is blooming in the forest garden.

Round Two, I planted wildflowers in part of the prairie garden that has been mowed. 

EDIT 5/15/19: Round Three, I finished planting wildflowers in the section of prairie garden I was working on.  I still need to throw down fertilizer there, and there are other places I want to plant seeds.

EDIT 5/15/19: Round Four, I scattered fertilizer over the area where I planted the flower seeds, and some  other places.  Then I pulled weeds around the east part of the forest garden.  As it is getting dark, I am done for the night.
