ProjectPosted: October 4, 2015
Today’s project was to save the Bulbine frutescens. The plants are in severe decline this year and have spilled over the rocks that line the bed. The photo is from better days.
The Rain Lilies had to be dug up. There were hundreds or thousands or maybe hundreds of thousands. Or at least it seemed that way as they were transplanted. The bulbs pictured in the tub are only the ones that had to be moved from another bed. The rest were just piled up near where they were dug.
While working, an unfamiliar bird started calling and popped out of the trees revealing itself as a Brown Thrasher (no photo) arriving for the winter. Next the Cardinals, Chickadees and Titmouses (wouldn’t pose for photo) came to check out the stranger and then filled up on birdseed.
