RE: /callas

Oh drat- ice is never a problem here (kind of funny to even think about ice
here!), but it will be wet in winter- that's when it rains here (usually-
last month was incredibly wet which is unusual).  Oh- but the wet weather
has had one benefit- I drove up to my dad's on Friday to pack his garage
(actually I packed half and made a gigantic trash pile that he is getting a
dumpster for).  Anyway he lives up near Oroville, CA (about an hour and a
half north of Sacramento) and there were wildflowers blooming everywhere-
things I had never seen bloom there before- like wild delphinium- and tons
of wild lupine (AKA Texas bluebonnets).

Sac, CA

If you are thinking of Japanese iris, be aware that while they love wet
when actively growing, their rhizomes should not be under water or ice
during winter dormancy.
