Friday Yardening

Today is cloudy and warm.

I fed the birds.  I've been seeing male goldfinches, and a bluejay the other day.

Round One, I planted 4 marigolds in the septic garden.  Lots of stuff is coming up on its own: rhubarb, chives, sedum, wild onions, mint, and lamb's ear. 

EDIT 5/17/19: Round Two, I planted morning glories and moonflowers in the barrel garden and around the support wire for the telephone pole.  I planted a rosemary and a cilantro plant also.

EDIT 5/17/19: Round Three, I planted a bunch of gladioli around the telephone pole, amongst the Asian lilies.

I saw an indigo bunting under the feeders in the forest garden.  :D  We had those around here for several years, but then they disappeared, and I hadn't seen one for quite a while.  I hope he sticks around!

EDIT 5/17/19: Round Four, I watered plants.
