I don't mean to depress the list, but I must relate the horrible day of
April 3rd. My previous postings listed several TB's in full bloom. Not
anymore! Nine inches of rain and 1/2" hail completely destroyed foliage
and more esthetically, blooms (OHHH NOOO). The iris look like Freddy
Krueger went through the farm in a very bad mood.  Since I've never
experienced such horrible destruction, should I trim the foliage or
leave the poor shreds hanging? To take the stress off the plants I have
cut more than 150 bloomstalks.
