Tuesday Yardening

Today is chilly, damp, and overcast with a variable breeze.

I fed birds.  I saw two goldfinches and an indigo bunting at the feeders.  :D

I planted milkweeds and bachelor's button near the west edge of the prairie garden.

EDIT 5/21/19: I planted more milkweeds and bachelor's button inside the prairie garden.  One of last year's pinks has sprouted and rebloomed, so that's nice.

I saw the bald eagle again! :D 3q3q3q!!!  He was in the savanna somewhere and flew up when I walked in.  I just caught a glimpse of a big bird, but when he circled back around, I saw the white head and tail.  Then he flew off to the north.  Unless there's a ton of food, these apex predators have a big territory, so now I've seen him twice I think he is staying somewhere in the area.  And he thinks my yard is a cool place to hang out!  I am so excited.

Also I bought a few more herbs and seeds today.
