Thursday Yardening

Today is mild, mostly sunny, and breezy.  It rained a little several times yesterday evening.

I fed the birds.  Out of birdseed, so I'll need to restock.

Round One, I trimmed more brush around the purple-and-white garden.

EDIT 5/30/19: Round Two, I finished trimming brush and spraying weeds around the purple-and-white garden.

EDIT 5/30/19: Round Three, I planted 2 purple sedum and 2 green-and-white hostas in the purple-and-white garden.  This completes the big project that I wanted to finish outdoors today.  I still have a couple of things left in a flat to plant, but I want pots for those.

EDIT 5/30/19: Round Four, we picked up sticks in the forest yard near the street and filled a wheelbarrow.

EDIT 5/30/19: Round Five, I planted a purple penstemon and a red yarrow in the wildflower garden, and a sweet woodruff in the cistern garden.  Then I watered the new plants.
