Monday

I should go to bed pretty soon.

Later: I slept for an hour or two, then woke up, and then slept for an hour or two.  I got up at 5-something a.m.

I decanted some perfumes that I had committed to swap.  I did this outside.  I finished packing up the bottles and samples and such, and made it to the post office.  The packages are on their way.  I've gotten what the folks I swapped with were sending to me.

I went to a grocery store after the post office, and came home exhausted.  I had lunch and took a nap.

In the late afternoon, I planted more of the flowers and herbs that I've gotten in the last few weeks.  I got more done than I thought I'd be able to do, so that was good.

I finished planting the Abyssinian gladiolus, one in the rectangular white pot with the chocolate mint and tiger lilies, and some in among the daffodils and irises in the big pot by the back door.  I put some freesias in the big pot, too, as I transplanted things from pot to pot.  I put the Canary Island broom in a larger pot.  It was already pot-bound in the pot I'd put it in.  I moved the 'Lady Plymouth' geranium to the pot the broom was in, and cleared the holes in the bottom of the pot the 'Lady Plymouth' geranium had been in so the water could actually drain out.  When that was done, I planted a lemon scented geranium in that pot.

I planted the other pot of chives by the back door, near the drainpipe, and the lovage that was being kind of crowded out by the lemon thyme.  I planted another 'Orange Glory' butterfly weed plant on the other side, and the hardy gladiolus.  I have a feeling that those glads are going to be magenta ones.  If the plants grow and flower, that will be a vivid show.  The Abyssinian gladiolus are white with purple in the center.  They're supposed to be fragrant.  I'll see what they do.
