Hi all~

Since I'm a newbie to the list, I hope I'm in the right category here, and
hope you don't mind me asking a couple of quick questions.

First, I was just out, cleaning up a bit and noticed that the leaves on most
of my iris are turning yellow. It's starting at the tips, and starting to

Second, I also noticed ANTS! Tons and tons of ants. There aren't any aphids
anywhere to be seen, but lots of ants. I even found them inside the leave
where the stalk comes out. (I know I'm not using the right terminology, but
I'll get the hang of it, given time). Will the ants hurt my plants? Should I
blast them with something? I don't like bugs on my plants...nope, not a bug
person, especially if they could hurt my babies.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!! I love being on this list!! Thanks
for making me feel so welcome.
