For Pix

Pix says Irises are right up there as her favourite flowers.

I like them too, but have always had a heck of a time growing them.    I've planted more irises than I can count, but they always whither and die.

Then, a while back the gardener at the local golf course (my mom's favourite haunt) sent me an iris root that she'd split. Truth is, I was pretty sure I'd kill it too, but I took the chance and stuck it in the ground by the dog pen. This one lived.

I'm going to have to stop in to thank that gardener again - she's a good source for plants!

  1. Janice they are lovely! Thank you so much... :)
    All I have to do is stick my nose in the middle of an iris and it takes me back to my GrandDad's farm. Sweet summer times!
