Happy New Year and Happy First Day of Autumn!
I took advantage of the fabulous weather here in NJ and planted the rest of my perennials yesterday.
I also took a chance and relocated the 2 'hardy lily' bulbs that were in bloom to the front of the border. Now, I can sit in the cozy Adirondak chair and see them without craning my neck. I have one bulb to my neighbor for her bed that is dedicated to all types of lilies. She is thrilled with the addition!
The japanese anemone that I planted is blooming its delicate pink daisy like flowers and it turns out that the snapdragons I bought on clearance are a similar color! So, the eye goes from the anemone to the snapdragons to the pink miniature rose quite nicely!
Most of the tiny mum plants that I put in last year came back strong this year, quite unexpectedly, and are beginning to bloom. Lovely copper colored blossoms to start and I think some burgundy and yellow will follow shortly.
I lit a few tea light candles in the chiminea last night, not wanting to do a 'whole fire'. The effect is pleasing enough, just after sundown with my hoodie on and a lap robe to keep my legs warm. A cat or two on my lap and I was just as toasty warm as if I'd had the 'whole fire'!
Hoping to pick up some of the materials for the window trim today. Humidity is down and there is a refreshing breeze coming through the open windows, so today might be the day to get this phase of the improvements started.
Hope everyone has a peaceful day.
