The Generator Garden - Phase I

The powers that be sent beautiful rays into my world today and I hurried to plant all of my "gifts" into the Generator Garden which is really just a holding bed right now.

Five peonies, four dogwoods (two dying, one hurting, and one thriving although ALL had green wood when I did the "scratch me to see if I'm dead" test), countless Autumn Joy sedums, creeping sedums, irises, chives, and maybe a few other things I can't remember right now (because I've had a few glasses of wine and it's late).

After I planted everything and watered it well (amazing how quickly one can plant a garden when nothing matters except to get it into the ground), Frank and I headed out to Old Lyme to pick up pachysandras and day lilies and then to Montville for May Apples, Lilies of the Valley, and Asiatic Lilies (not my favorite but I'll make it work).

This will be a ridiculously busy weekend in the garden.  Edging, mulching, container gardens, and clearing.  I can't think of a better way to spend my time.
