Saturday -- Halloween

I'll likely go to bed in an hour or so.

I went to bed a little after 1:00 a.m.  I woke up around 7:30 a.m. for no apparent reason.

We won't be doing anything to mark Halloween this year.

I moved around the plants that I had brought in last night, and got most of them near a windowsill.  Some will still need some switching around.  The antique freesias and a potted lily bulblet (maybe 'Uchida'?) are sprouting.  The Christmas cactus is blooming, and there are still some buds on the poet's jasmine.  The Madonna lily's leaves are getting longer, and somewhat greener.

I ended up putting scented geraniums here and there by the west windows downstairs, and some other plants by the east window of the living room, which gets shaded by the porch.  I'm sure I'll rearrange again as various plants need more sun, or more bulbs that I'm growing indoors sprout.

I washed the inside part of the windows on the lower story of the west side of the house.  Hopefully that will let in more light.

I went out and worked with the new hardware cloth I'd gotten, putting a good-sized section of it around the part of the herb garden where the 'Sharifa Asma' English rose and the 'Gold Dust' daylilies are, where I'd planted the 'Uchida' lilies a couple of months ago.  I planted the other regal lilies more in the middle section of that garden, and the 'Roman Blue' hyacinth.  I put protection over those spots.

I took apart the hardware cloth arrangement I'd had around the tiger lilies and peachy-colored daylilies to the north side of the house.  Those tiger lilies are the "regular" single orange ones.  I planted the double tiger lilies in that area, as I'd planned to, and several of the daylilies I dug out of the former rose garden in the spring.  I decided to plant the Byzantine gladioli there, too.  I put a new circle of hardware cloth around the area where the bulbs are.

I unhooked the hardware cloth I'd arranged around the Magnolia grandiflora sapling.  For a couple of years it only had two leaves, but now it has well over a dozen and is probably more than a foot tall.  I'd filled in a hole next to it with garden soil, and planted a couple of hyacinths that I'd gotten in the spring and an 'Orange Glory' butterfly weed plant in the garden soil.  I think those hyacinths are a white one and a purple(?) one.  The butterfly weed had died back.  I planted the 'Gypsy Queen' hyacinth bulb that I'd kept and the 'Madame Sophie' white double hyacinth there, and then decided to put the surprise lily (Lycoris) near the magnolia also.  The 'Gypsy Queen' hyacinth has apricot-colored flowers.  It may take a couple of years for the surprise lily to bloom, but it blooms in the summer.  The surprise lily flower is pink.

Much later: I finished a line editing job.
