Tuesday Yardening

Today is partly sunny and warm with a little breeze.

I fed the birds.  Today I've seen a cardinal, doves, and sparrows. 

The puddles at the end of the driveway have dried up.  A few days ago a saw a raccoon track in one.  :D

Round One, I planted two different coreopsis in the wildflower garden.  These are big gallon pots. 

EDIT 5/28/19: Round Two, I dumped out the old potting soil and refilled the big trough pot.  Then I planted apple mint, rosemary, stevia, verbena, and pineapple mint.

EDIT 5/28/19: Round Three, I planted another coreopsis and a red gaillardia in the wildflower garden.  

EDIT 5/28/19: Round Four, I planted a blue delphinium in the wildflower garden.  I filled in the last hole with fresh potting soil, which is where I put the first two coreopsis plants earlier today.  I am down to one partial flat of plants now.  Go me.

EDIT 5/28/19: Round Five, I watered the new plants and scattered some wildflower seeds in the wildflower garden.  As it is now dark, I am done for the night.
