Re: Answer & query

Hi Donald,

I'm sorry to hear about your water problems.   I know how you feel about
having to pay the price.  A few years back when I lived on the Monterey
Peninsula, we were on water rationing only allowed 50 gallons per person/
day.  Try watering flowers on that.
Suggestion:  When you run water to get it hot, put a pan or bucket under the
facet to collect the cold water and then you will have enough water to water
your irises.
