The weather here in southern Wisconsin continues to be glorious. Beautiful day after beautiful day. Too nice to be indoors at the computer when I could be out in the garden.
I've been tweaking the beds, planting 300 bulbs, picking up fallen twigs and Honey Locust pods, putting down some nice mulch from Olbrich Botanical Gardens and starting general fall clean-up.
Yesterday the temp hit 74 degrees F. (23.33 C.) while I was working, sunny with a light breeze. The Calamintha was still covered with flowers and bees. Astrantia 'Buckland' (below) has been blooming for five months. Toad Lilies are everywhere, including big bouquets in the house, all looking gorgeous. Could not have been a more perfect day.
