I made a placeholder entry in case LJ was down when I woke in the morning.

I went to bed at around 1:15 a.m., after watching some of "Highway Thru Hell."  I'm sure they established which highway it was at the beginning of the series.  All I know is that it's in Canada, and I think it's called the Coke(?).  I'll have to ask Biyuti if she's heard of it.  I put the Weather Channel on when I'm watching videotapes, so that when I stop the tape, I can go do things without seeing the middle of a movie or sitcom.  I caught pieces of "Highway Thru Hell" that way.  I don't think it took me long to go to sleep.

I got up with the alarm at 10:00 a.m., so that wasn't bad.

Dad and I dug up the snowdrops that were too close together.  I planted some of the bulbs again.  I want to dig up the daffodils that are too close together and plant them at little distances apart.

The lilacs are blooming.  The species Tradescantia has leaves up.  The sweet shrub is in bud.  It looks like some of the flowers will open in a couple of days.  I wish I hadn't planted that so close to the lilacs.

I planted the dill.  The white lily-of-the-valley is in bud.  That could be separated out, too.  I showed Dad what pots had plants I wanted in there, and which pots had weeds in them.  We'll work more in the afternoon.

Later: I planted the basil.  Dad planted the red pansies.  I sprayed the daylilies and some roses with Deer-Off.  'Polar Star' looks like it's coming up from the roots.  It was an own-root rose, so it would still be 'Polar Star'.  'Souvenir de la Malmaison' looks like it's coming up from the roots, too.  I'm pretty sure that was on its own roots.

"Old Dogs, New Tricks" is on tonight.  I will probably do a separate post about that.
