Yesterday we picked up a big box of plants from Mom and Dad.  Today I've started putting them out, starting with a pair of pawpaw trees.

The weather is warm and cloudy.  It rained a little yesterday.  I've been seeing bumblebees around.

EDIT 4/17/17:  Round 2, I planted a Moench purple aster and an Azure Fairy daisy in the wildflower garden.

EDIT 4/17/17: Round 3, I planted a mock orange in the forest garden and a ninebark in the hedge along the west edge of the savanna.  I also covered today's plantings with milk jugs and watered them.  I still need to mulch them, though.

Another wildflower is blooming in the forest garden, with a pendant yellow flower.  I think it's a largeflower bellflower.  I also found a black parrot tulip blooming in the garden beside the parking lot.

EDIT 4/17/17: Round 4, I planted the heather by the barrel garden and the red feather clover in the wildflower garden, and put milk jugs over both.

Which varietals of pawpaw? My neighbor added two pairs of pawpaws last year; something pruned them but hopefully they will still grow.

I've considered mock orange. Which ninebark cultivar?

Gardening is always such a soothing ritual. And of course, the results are beautiful (or if veggies or fruit, can also be delicious!).

Always lovely to see wildflowers in bloom - one of my favorite sights!
