Digging in the Dirt

I planted some butterfly attracting flower seeds this morning.  Last year I bought more than I could sow, and had put them in a plastic bag in the freezer.  It is time -- and has been time for a few weeks now -- to pull them out and get them into the dirt.  Bonus -- that means that this year they are free.  I planted a handful of mixed butterfly garden seeds, and then these three:

Butterfly Gaura

Showy Fleabane

Yellow Coneflower
They take 14-21 days to germinate, so I'll need to be especially diligent about watering them during that time.  I planted these in 3 beds in the front where I know the soil is already adequate.  I have more seeds that I'll plant in other areas, but I'll need to do some soil amendments first.
