These #FallPlanting posts are getting further-and-further out from reality. The photos below show lush, green garden. I'm posting this at the end of November. This was from way back in early October. I had a Cat's Pajamas Nepeta planted in the backyard in pretty deep shade. It wasn't doing well. So, I dug it out and brought it over to the curved border outside the kitchen window. The first photo below is the Nepeta peeking out from under a Guacamole Hosta leaf. The second is the new home by the peonies and Lucky Charm Anemones: This doesn't count in my new/divided plants, right? It is just a transplant. I'm posting this in November 2023, but I did this transplanting in mid-October 2023.

They've been mostly neglected and suffered a bit from rabbits . Below is a look at the 'pre-dividing' planting of these sedges: A closer look at the one on the top of that photo shows that there's some 'center rot' going on and there are a number of smaller, independent sedges. This is just like what is going on with the Elijah Blue Fescue grass IB2DWs . Below is a look at the carex in question that I decided to divide: There's a small buckthorn seedling coming up in there that is (obviously) due for removal. But, It is easy to see a number of sedges here. I opted for dividing this clump into five. Three *real
