Later that day: I planted some plants, thank goodness. I got a pineapple sage somewhere (Walmart?) and planted that in a somewhat bigger pot. I replanted a jasmine that had fallen over. I planted the 'Firewitch' dianthus. I ran out of potting soil from the bag, and stuck the "new" milk-and-wine lily bulb into a pot that had a mix of soil and little blue decorative rock chips. I'll get more potting soil soon. I think I planted other things. I still have a few oxalis, several rain lilies and a few harlequin flowers to plant, plus the mix of hostas and the bag of "border" (short) Oriental lilies. I'm sure I'm forgetting things.
The orris bud that I picked yesterday opened during the night. I'm not sure if the 'Indian Chief' iris bud will open -- I picked it when it was still tight in bud -- or the mystery iris that's in a similar pot, which was also in tight bud.
