Recent transplants

Recently, I’ve been transplanting a lot of the seedlings to various places in my original bed and elsewhere in the back and front yards.

I put in a few rows of cosmos in the backyard, including this one around the container garden.

There’s another five of these babies between Kim’s new (this year) Peace Rose and the fence, and Kim’s knockout roses and the container garden section of the extended bed.

This color-coded image of the right side of my original bed shows what's planted here. Orange is the zinnia, yellow is the mixed wildflowers, purple is the bachelor buttons, turquoise is the blanket flower and the single green spot is the jalapeno.
This color-coded image of the right side of my original bed shows what's planted here. The same general pattern is planted on the other side, too. Orange is the zinnia, yellow is the mixed wildflowers, purple is the bachelor buttons, turquoise is the blanket flower and the single green spot is the jalapeno.

Not labeled in the photo above are the cosmos along the fence and the portulaca which wraps around the front border of the bed. But you knew that, right?

Some bachelor buttons were also transplanted to a new section of the extended bed. This shot was taken today, and they've really grown since being put into the ground here in full, uncrowded sun.

That really black stuff around the buttons? That’s leaf mold compost I got from Enchanted Forest here in Richmond which was processed in Conroe. Nature’s Way, I believe. My first investment in black gold. But that’s another post.
