This 'tree' iris is almost my height.....glad I live in the tundra
where the growing season is short where the Siberians are taller than
the Tall Bearded. Some of our Siberians grow in the 44" range and
High Standards once grew to 46".
More snow last night....shovel, shovel....pretty warm, tho' with 32
balmy degrees (F). Great day for snow-shoeing and downhill skiing.
