Iris!

I am absolutely rapturous over my iris plants this spring! In the fall of 2006, Carol divided some of her iris and sent me a few extra rhizomes which I popped into the ground. Spring 2007 came and I just got leaves as the plants were establishing themselves. Now comes the reward for patient waiting!

Soon, two more iris plants will burst with gorgeous blooms. Thanks so much, Carol!

Oooh, they're stunning, Von!! Isn't it wonderful to be able to share your favourite things? Carol and Mike sent me a bunch of daylily seeds that I sowed some weeks ago and 30(!!) have come up so far... We need a bigger garden...LOL!! Enjoy your wonderful new plants!!

Gorgeous! I love 'showy' flowers. If you gals want to do a iris swap in the fall, I'll be dividing mine then.

Carol is such a doll. I have rhizomes that my dad split for me last fall, but I didn't get them in the ground yet. :( I just hope that they are still good when I do!
