I worked. I got out a little before 3:00 p.m. today. I'd done a good amount of generally cleaning the apartment.
It wasn't bad out, though not as nice as it was Tuesday. I managed to finally plant several hardy plants that had been in pots over the summer. The 'Blue Staccato' iris had lost all its leaves. I think that's because the rectangular pot it was in didn't have much drainage, and it's been raining all summer and most of the fall so far. I dug it up. The roots were still alive, as I'd figured. I planted that in the ground in front of the front porch. I had originally wanted to plant all of the irises in the ground. I just couldn't think of good places.
I planted the oregano where the iris had been. The oregano had been in a little pot, and was pot-bound. I finally planted the sweet flag, in front of the porch also, but farther from the door, near the side where I'd planted the sweet briar rose too close. I think I'd planted hyacinths there, because I dug up a bulb, but I replanted that right away.
I planted the sage on one side of another of those rectangular pots. I don't know what had been there. I'd put an iris in the middle of that pot, and the basil on the other side. The basil will be gone soon. There's a bit of portulaca near it that I thought about digging up and bringing in.
I planted a small wild bleeding heart plant that I'd gotten from Jenkins Arboretum between the two hardy cyclamens. The cyclamens have been blooming for a few weeks now. I knocked off a couple of flowers weeding around them, but I put them in little vases inside. The hardy cyclamen flowers are about violet-sized, and pink.
