Today is sunny and quite warm, with just a little breeze.

Round 1, I planted dill, oregano, thyme, and pineapple sage in the strip garden. 

Round 2, I potted up jalapeno pepper plants with lime basil, and cayenne pepper plants with sweet basil.  I put the leftovers in the cistern herb garden.

Round 3, I planted more morning glory seeds around the support wire for the telephone pole.

Round 4, I potted cilantro, flat parsley, and curled parsley and put the extras in the cistern garden.  I also put together a pot of yellow and orange flowers.  Then I pulled more weeds around the forest garden.

The first peony bud is open.  The white globe allium is in full bloom.  I rather like it, and may buy more.  They come in purple too, which might be nice for the purple-and-white garden.

It's dusk now, so I'm done for the night.
