Wednesday

I should go to sleep pretty soon.

Later: I didn't stay up super-late.  I woke up around 8:30 a.m. for no apparent reason.

I have a Zoom appointment with K.M. and a probably in-person appointment with K.S. later.

Also, I have flower bulbs to start planting.  I want to get the 'Cream Beauty' crocuses and some of the daffodils and hyacinths planted soon.

Later:

I planted all ten of the 'Cream Beauty' crocuses and one each of a 'Twin Sisters' daffodil and a 'Broughshane' daffodil.

I cut a couple of stems of clusters of 'The Fairy' rose and cut off broken stems of the Rober's Lemon Rose scented geranium.  I stuck those in a container with water that was in the basin that has the compost in it.

My virtual appointment was fine.

I went outside again and put labels by my plants.

I ended up going to my in-person appointment in my gardening clothes, but I brought 'Teasing Georgia' roses for K.S. to enjoy.  That still has several flowers, too.

Right after I got home, I ended up planting daylilies next to the raised bed.  As I thought, the double tawny daylily clump that I'd taken out of a pot a few weeks ago had started to root into the ground there.  I "officially" planted some of those daylilies along the south side of the raised bed.

I ended up "digging up" several irises that I had in a couple of the rectangular windowbox-type flowerpots.  They'd bloomed in the spring, but the leaves were turning yellow and dying.  The pots had a lot of iris borers in them, which was gross.  I rinsed off the irises.  There was a 'Stella d'Oro' daylily in one of the pots.  I rinsed the dirt off of the roots of that, too, and planted it near the path between the front porch and the driveway.

I replanted what I think is the Delicata iris and a piece of a 'Mrs. Horace Darwin' iris rhizome near the path there, too.  They're fairly small irises.  Though their root systems were large, they only had very short leaves just starting to sprout after the longer leaves had died off.

I planted the 'Invitation' iris in with the 'Cathrine' iris in the pot that had the Easter lily in it.  I found a September e-mail from the person who sent the Award-Winning iris collection plus "bonus" irises with a picture of 'Cathrine.'  It's a lavender-blue with a pinkish-orange beard.

I need to replant 'Gay Geisha,' 'Pinnacle,' another piece of 'Mrs. Horace Darwin,' and some other iris rhizomes.  I need to rinse off and replant the 'Empress of India' iris that's still in a pot, too.  That was with the 'Stella d'Oro' daylily, but I was running out of daylight, so I left that clump of rhizomes intact in the soil.  I didn't tackle the pot with the 'Indian Chief' iris yet, either.  Next time I have daylight and time for gardening, and it isn't raining, those will be projects to do, I guess.  I should soak all those rhizomes in a weak solution of bleach, too, before I replant them.

I was thinking of replanting the irises I have in a smallish pot, too, the irises that had a bud that blasted in the spring.  That might also appreciate room to spread out.  We'll see what I get done in the next few days.
