Memorandum Monday: Purple Rain
Iris are a pretty forgiving plant. I once got four or five shopping bags full or iris toobers that someone was throwing away in late October and threw them in the ground. I had flowers the next spring. I would imagine though they don't grow where cacus grow, hence the photo!
Currently at the moment it's threatning to rain and I'm getting weather alerts about flash floods so I'm hoping we get some rain to water the plants but not so much that all the new grass seed and hay we spread after a recent project washes away. We have a long weekend here in the States with what always seems to be the official start of summer; Memorial Day weekend.
Oh look, it's THE MAN checking on me. We just finished chipping all the gardens. As you can see, the plants are already quite tall so it was a good thing we got it done. Will have some peonies soon!
Oh and on the subject of purple, check back tomorrow. There will be more purple on my blog!
