So, it was about 50 degrees and drizzly today. I had ordered the Kentucky River Cane (Arundinaria gigantea), and it arrived and needed to be planted. I have tried to find info on best planting practices, but ended up just planting most of it outside today.
Lydia was an enthusiastic helper. We planted it mostly by the pond, because that is where it traditionally grew. We did plant one plant in a pot in the playroom, and we will see if any of the 10 plants grow. I don't think we'll know until spring, in any case. While we were out planting, we noticed that something (probably a squirrel?) has dug up some of our tulip and daffodil bulbs that we planted a while ago. It looks like most are undisturbed at this point, but we definitely lost some. It can be hard to wait until spring to see what will come up!
