Fr. Mike and I are Omaha-bound to put on the first half of Making Disciples. Gone till Sunday night.

Then home for a week. The focus (once I've put the finished touches on a few up-coming presentations:
Writing content for the Institute's new website which is scheduled to debut October 26.

Our old one is stunningly, 11 years old now. (Which is 246 years old in cyber-years.) It is elegantly designed but very, very difficult to change, and we needed something more flexible and interactive and something that reflects all that the Institute has been involved in and become over the last 11 years,.

The other focus will be planting bulbs: irises, daffs, tulips. 450 of em.

Daffs in the wildflower bed (which we mow every year after frost has laid the flowers low). They will bloom before the wildflowers wake up and the flowers will cover up their dying foliage.

I'm naturalizing irises in groups alone the fence line. Take 9 or 13 or 15 bulbs and just toss them in the general area you want to plant and plant em where they fall. Tulips around the waterfall area.

That's the plan. We'll see how it goes. It's hard work but once it is done, they'll multiply and grow and come back year after year with almost no maintenance. Like everything else in the garden. The vast majority of the work is up front.
