This triangle is another form of 'stick gardening' I've done. I shaped sticks in a triangle around what I call a 'drooping pine' after I trimmed it last spring.

On Friday I transplanted some wild growth around the fore-point of it.


I also tried something wierd (but ya' never know). I poked those little wee nuts that fall off the whateveritis tree (beech, maybe - dunno').

That's why I have the strawberry cases along there - I have stones round 'em so the squirrels can't get in.

At the back corner (on the left) I transplanted a 'something' that one of the tenants found out for the garbage.

And somebody gave me some new bulbs today - 4 daffodils, some crocus and some hyacinthe.

I also planted one of my daffodil bulbs next to that little plant. I'm going to do the other 3 tomorrow (wasn't a whole lotta' time left).

Ahhhhhhh! So I done a good thing . . . ok. I planted the other 3 daffodils today. One on the other side and two at the backside of the triangle.

Put down old fridge racks (we're collecting them for this reason).

Tomorrow I'm going to tackle the other bulbs.

This is my first time for planting bulbs.

I took one of the daffodil bulbs and rolled it 'tween my palms and very softly sang hari krsna har krsna krsna krsna hari hari hari rama hari rama rama rama hari hari . . .

I'm not officially a 'devotee' of Krsna, but I like what little I have learned from it. The chant especially - it always calms me.

Don't know what it's going to do for the daffodils though. The squirrels are probably out there right now chanting in the night

Eat the daffies

Heh! Heh!

Daffodils are poisonous, so the squirrels won't touch them. However, crocus and hyacinths are squirrel candy.
