front bed

Did some Mother's Day gardening. Raked, dug up all the dead iris roots (remaining six or so healthy rhizomes to Stacy), found Paul's black-and-gold D20, and ripped out all the defunct drip lines. Watered, dug in a bag of mushroom compost, watered some more, planted the daisies, cosmos, and sage I picked up at NM Plant Co. plus a Home Depot impulse-buy gaura, watered again, spread mulch, watered. Oh, and I also planted the geranium and petchoa in the big pot.

Elspeth always gives me the side eye.
