You'd be on the sofa or the stairs, but in your head you knew it was really a rickety boat or a collapsing hillside, and the only way to survive was to not fall onto the floor, aka hot lava (don't ask me how a boat was in hot lava...maybe there was volcanic upwelling?) And you know it was nearly as much fun if the boat or hillside was stable, so there was a lot of thrashing around, pushing each other off to save yourself, grabbing each other's arms to save them at the last minute, etc.
Hm, this 'Hot Lava' echinacea doesn't look like it's going to scald anyone any time soon, but it sure is putting on a dramatic, one might say "firey", show in the garden.
I just put it in this summer....got it in a special buy two, get one deal. It's supposed to be a perennial... Let's see if it's tough enough to make it through an Ohio winter. I've been watching the extended forecast and it sounds like the combination of el Nino, La Nina, and other longer term weather cycles could be lining us up for an extra cold winter (if we're lucky!). ;-)
