"Triple Flower is down. I say again, Triple Flower is down!"
So, I went out the back door and the third bud on the big Asian lily had bloomed -- but the pot had fallen over again. That's it, time to repot. Photo to follow; I stood it back up and it needs some quiet time.
Update: "Triple Flower is in her new home. Triple Flower is in her new home."
I also snuck a couple more perennials in next to the front steps, where the stonecrop and yarrow hangs out. We'll see if they all get along. I'd like to add more feathery, exotic-looking yarrow to the back part of that area, but I haven't found any so far. It's a little leftover spot, between the raised bed where the main herd of hostas live and the steps. My plan is to fill it up with perennials, with tough, aggressive stonecrop in front to keep the riffraff out and taller stuff in back that can peer over it and catch some sun. I'm not a very attentive gardener, so I try to set the plantings up so they will have a chance to fend for themselves.
