Paul Neyron rose 2


I should go to bed soon.  Fortunately, I don't have to be anywhere tomorrow.

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.
