We got rain, rain and more rain out of that nor'easter. Sunday and yesterday it looked like my irises were drowning. The sun was out earlier today so I took the opportunity to spray Messenger on my roses, and while I was at it I figured I'd hit the baby irises and daylilies.
I usually see my first iris bloom somewhere around Mother's Day. Nothing looks even remotely close to sending up bloomstalks, but it doesn't look like all that rain did much damage. I guess it might be too soon to tell if I have lost anything to soft rot, though.
I haven't had any snakes in my mulch, but a few years ago I had a load of free mulch from the next township, and I found interesting little plastic things in it which someone told me were crack vials. :(

Ahhhh yes !  Yet another reminder of why I live in the northeast !
I may have 6" fresh snow on the ground, but I have not had my bloom freeze or had bad kinds of snakes ! (Though I do have a 4 ft garter snake living in my rock garden)

Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
