Wednesday Yardening

Today is sunny, breezy, and warm.  We got quite a bit of rain last night and more on the way.

Round One, I planted 6 red dianthus and 4 assorted zinnias in the prairie garden.  I also noticed a few flowers coming back from last year -- there are pink dianthus already blooming and I just spotted a baby marigold.  :D

I still need to get back out and feed birds, though. 

EDIT 5-22-19: Round Two, I fed the birds.  I have seen a goldfinch, a house finch, sparrows, and doves today.

I raked mulch toward the center of the forest garden and sowed grass seed around the east edge.  Then I planted columbines and forget-me-nots inside the forest garden.

EDIT 5-22-19: Round Three, I planted an oregano in the strip garden.  Then I planted 4 black hollyhock roots and multicolor hollyhock seeds around the telephone pole near the driveway.
