Sending yawl a smile today. Iris cristata is a favorite native here. A bullet 
proof plant with the following additional merits: Thrives in shade. First 
bearded to bloom. Self sows. Also increases by sending forth root filaments 
in the top 1" of soil. Not only tolerates, but likes mulch. Root filaments 
produce a "beaded bracelet" with tiny nodules (about 3 mm in diameter) along 
the hair like filament. It may be moved transplanted and divided any time of 
year with impunity and does not rot. Children like the bracelets, dig with 
relish if ever shown it exists, and if shown where to replant what they dig 
create new beds with a minimum of effort on my part.

Other natives in picture are azalea, trillium, bellwort, swamp grass, an 
emerging bladder wort and a confused bleeding heart. Of these, bellwort is 
special. Its common name, wild oat, brings tornados of smiles to my mind 
remembering some of the grandest of times now gone by.

Oh yes! I almost forgot that's me on the left sending you the smile..... the 
good lookin' guy with the rolled up eyes.

Yawl smile,
