Yard Work Day

 I spent the day working in the yard.  There is always something to do, I just have to get motivated to do it.
I decided it would be a good time to go ahead and plant my  Dwarf Alberta Spruce trees, that have been living in pots for years now, in the ground.
The pots are 18 inches wide and 16 inches deep, so I had to dig some pretty big holes.  It was all I could do to get the trees out of the pots and lift them into the holes.  I think they will be happier in the ground now.  Next, I need to decide what to plans in between them.  I would like for it to look a little less chaotic.

I also worked in my long flower bed.  I decided I don’t like the gladioluses anymore.  The blooms don’t last long, they fall over and spread way too much.  So I dug them up, 2 buckets of bulbs.  My Siberian irises had also been spreading so I dug some of those up, 4 bags full.  Some bearded irises where out growing their spot, 1 bucket full.  And I got a small bucket of seeds from my purple coneflowers.  Now I just need a few people to share with.
