Gardening at Night: A Hard Rain (or freeze, or snow) Is Gonna Come

Wow, it's been a while! Not much has been happening inside the house, but I've gotten a few things planted in the front yard. Here's the round up:

Oak Leaf Hydrangea (native to this area) planted in the corner. This one is still quite small and will probably (fingers crossed) grow to 3 or 4 times this size.

And it already has a lodger (we watched the black, wooly caterpillar build his chrysalis. Don't know what he will be)!

Coreopsis hybrids (they will have pink flowers; this was a totally root bound TLC plant I got on sale) near the gravel area.

And lots and lots of bulbs: crocus, grape hyacinth (also called muscari), purple-black tulips, and purple alliums.

Unfortunately, some of the bulbs have woken up a little early (I guess these are probably the crocus). They are in for a rude shock at some point.

Porch decorated with some mini gourds and squashes for Fall!
