I got to spend a good hour this evening in the gardening, doing some general cleaning up, as well as planting some seed starts.
I cut back all my yarrow, whose heads were quite an unsightly brownish-black. A few have rebloomed, so I kept those, but I cut the rest back to their basal foliage so that it now looks like I have a smooth field of ferns.
The seedlings I started a month or so ago were large enough to put out into the garden, so I planted some echinacea, canterbury bells and columbine into the main garden, and in the parking strip planted scabiosa, asclepius, and jupiter's beard. Though I prefer watering in the morning, I then watered everything in.
I love this temperate weather!
