That's a pretty iris. The bees seem to often have better ideas than I do.
It's amazing how different the precipitation can be, just a little North of you here in Maryland. This year, we've had lush green grass all summer. I can't remember the last time that happened. Crunchy brown lawns in August seem to almost be the rule here. And now that I think about it, to the East of us, it was almost as dry as usual.
Take care, Tom
