Those irises look large and healthy to start
with... you should have great success! I am curious, though, because
of your high fences... do you experience problems with wildlife, elk, moose, or
something? <just kidding>.

Subject: [iris-photos] More of the new
planting at the cabin
This view looks south at a neighbor?s unimproved
lot. We have suffered five years
of severe drought in this area.
In 2002, there was so little rain that even
some of the juniper trees died.
You can see a couple of those in the picture. We had 25 nice ponderosa pine trees on
our lot and lost ten of them to the drought and the pinebark beetle. Now when I go up, I water those that I
really want to keep. Of course,
our big fear up there is fire. We
have tried to fire proof our place by cutting out all the bushes and scrub oak
that surrounded the cabin, but not all the owners have done
