Re: Multiple iris parts

Hi All,

I found one of my SDB's to have four falls and it looked so funny.
Yesterday I found another SDB to have two beards next to one another.   This
weather is doing strange things to the irises where they are just now
starting to bloom one by one.

They predict rain this afternoon on into Sunday morning.  We are having a
garden party Sunday afternoon, so I hope the weather improves or we will be
holding the party in the barn.
