I forgot to add water to my three-year-old lotus barrel. Big deal, it has never bloomed anyway, and this year I didn't even fertilize it. I threw some other pond plants in there, assuming the lotus had died.

I wish this strategy worked for all of my plants.

The picture is so beautiful ... made all the more so, by your tale of 'neglect'. Like rising above adversity.
Thanks for sharing.

Terrific. Reminds me I need to add water to the Japanese iris pots' container (an old sled).
