Today was an overcast day, perfect for gardening. Yesterday, after getting home from the Park, I went out to the garden for about an hour and a half. It was just too hot and sunny... I felt as though I had sunstroke and I was only out for 1 1/2 hrs. Today, was much cooler and no sun beating down. I transplanted 10 of the little lupines of the 15 that have germinated. Most of them are in the front strip where I cleaned out the daisies. They are at the back of the garden bed that is about 10 feet long and 5 wide. There is thyme and a blue grass in the front. I also left the achillea (Yarrow) in this bed. It is suppose to rain tonite. If it does not, I will be out watering in the new transplants tomorrow. I added a bog of compost to the area before transplanting. After the transplants, I had a bit of time to do more weeding along the stone path. It is coming along and looks good cleaned up.
The pinks are in bloom at the back, the roses at the front, the heliotrope on the deck, and so it smells very nice in my garden. All the decorative thyme, orgegano, lavender and any other herbs add to the fragrance. The South of France comes to mind when I am out in the garden when it smells so good.
