Re: checking in / happy fall!

What a wonderful way to spend the day Zem, and timely for Percy - he could use an extra blessing or two. Doesn't matter if nothing got done in the garden, we need to spread our time around on all the things we enjoy.

This is the first time in 6 years I haven't had to prepare Bulbapalooza, the fall MG bulb sale and it has been nice to spend more time on my own yard.

Today was the blessing of the animals at our Episcopal church. I took Percy. The service was wonderful, as usual, and Percy likes his new St. Francis medal. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and there were so many animals there -- not only dogs and cats, but horses, too. There were even animal treats on the buffet table. I didn't get anything done in the yard because I was just tired, but I'm glad I had the day off.

I spent today cleaning the crabgrass and other grassy weeds out of
one of two perennial beds. Resigned myself to almost completely
redoing it  because of the amount of digging necessary to remove the
undesirables. Saved seeds from my Silene regiae because I am also
spreading Preen. Transplanted two clumps of Alma Potschke aster.
Hauled three wheelbarrows full to the burn pile. Planted 3 Kniphofia
'Red Flamingo', 5 Echinacea 'Rubinstern', and one Louisiana iris
'Joie de Vivre'. Now off to downtown Chicago to attend a non plant
related :>( meeting. The fare on Amtrak will be the least expensive
part of the three days.

Although I am extremely tired from it all, today I tackled the
front garden
beds.  I decided it was just too much of a mess to deal with and
dug it all
out under my bay window area.  I had thought of saving some stuff,
but after
looking at it closely, realized there was a lot of damage from this
summer.  A
guy from the older section of town was mulching leaves this
morning, so I was
able to get a few bags full to add to that section since now
nothing is there.
It will be bear for the winter and I will figure something out next
Off to take a nap and maybe later work some more.
