Being jazzed up by my wildflower visit to the Colorado mountains last weekend, I decided our flower beds in the back yard needed a make over. And why not plant some wildflowers while I was at it?
After removing two dozen or so iris bulbs, clearing off the leaf debris from our cottonwoods which shed leaves all summer due to the low rainfall, I was ready to start planting.
Thus far here is the gardening score:
Purchased columbine and lupine this morning and planted:
Transferred yellow columbine: two plants:
Planted Bluebells: two plants:
Planted Penstemon: one plant:
Tended this ground cover which I am not yet able to identify, but it is doing well:
Shopped in my herb garden for dinner tonight (sage, parley, basil, oregano, tarragon, chives):
Transferred clematis: one plant, transferred delphinium: two plants. Transferred ground cover from top bed to prayer garden below. Transferred two iris bulbs in prayer garden. Husband chopped down 6 foot shrub and I cleaned off the debris.
Showered, ate yogurt and cereal, shopped, gardened and blogged and it is now 11 AM. I am pooped already! What is on your Saturday morning schedule? Whatever you do, I hope it is relaxing. Have a great weekend!
