I had a productive Saturday in the garden, did you?

My day began with a trip out to UC Davis for their plant sale: I returned home with five plants I wasn't planning to buy (but should substitute well for what I wanted): Nepeta tuberosa, Lepechinia chamaedryoides, Achillea ageratifolia, Artemisia ludoviciana 'Valerie Finnis', Salvia pratensis 'Swan Lake').

I planted all five, plus five scabiosa 'Butterfly Blue' I ordered online for $1.98/plant that arrived today. Then a tree service delivered a giant pile of "free" woodchips (DH tipped them generously) so, after I put my son to bed, I spent the rest of the day spreading woodchips. We hardly made a dent in the pile so have a lot more work ahead of us tomorrow.
