It's 70 degrees and sunny. I've got a nice sunburn on my face and I stink. I smell like dirt and sweat. Ok, maybe not the worst of smells for those of us that like to garden.
I spent the morning getting some work done, but the temptation to be outside was just too high. So I picked 22 containers that could be planted out (second set of leaves).
In the front bed:
■ Rose Queen Salvia
In the white bed:
■ Nicotiana - 1 green, 1 white
■ White Agastache
■ Queen Anne's Lace - 2 containers
■ Shasta Mix
In the perennial bed:
■ Maltese Cross - 3
■ Foxglove - pink/white - 2
■ Lamb's Ear
■ Rudbeckia - 1 "brown", 1 'Autumn Colors'
■ Red Sails Poppy
■ Dame's Rocket
■ Catchfly Blue Angel
■ Nicotiana Purple - 2
■ Crimson Clover
I also planted out the clumps of peonies I got this weekend in Virginia. I tried not to break them up too much hoping they will bloom this year. HUGE clumps.
The Hostas are coming up under the oak tree.
A bird planted holly.
One of the prettiest daffodils that was here when I bought the house. I need to mark them so I can move them to a better location.
Now, I have to do some actual work this evening. But it was worth it. I am loving this weather.
Edit: The cardinals have found the bird feeder I received for my birthday. Yesterday there was a squirrel trying to get into it as well. I think it left hungry.
6:50pm - 64 degrees and the windows are still open. Forgot to add that I sowed the cherry tomato seeds today.
