Re: checking in / happy fall!

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.
