I hated to Shock you, but you misunderstood. I love flowers and I love
there beauty. Everything has its place and priorities.( > bored with seeing
beauty! Oh, Mike -- how about roses that bloom constantly) Dug them up and
gave them away. Planted more iris. Japanese Beatles kept them stripped
(roses) too much chemicals to fight them.
Now I know you have been to a Commercial Iris Garden. Isn't it overwelming
to look at all those iris at once? Beautifull Yes? Tell me the truth which
is prettier All those iris blooms or just one iris bloom close up. Quanity
is not allways better. Rarity adds to beauty. An iris that blooms like an
Impatiant would soon bore me. So would a gallon of icecream every day and I
LIKE icecream. I would grow them but I would not enjoy them like I do now.
Give me time I have a few now 100 iris is my limit. Not as young and spry
as you. That is about all the room and time I have to give to them.
Wan't me to send you a picture of my first rebloomer.
