Re: OT-BIO: Jody Nolin

Hi Jody,
Glad to hear that someone else is a keen dig up the grass and plant more
iris person. My husband spends all day growing grass for our dairy herd and
I seem to spend a lot of time digging it up...One never has enough room do
they, especially when you get tempted by new iris releases. You will find
everyone on iris-talk is very friendly and extremely helpful and are always
there to share their extensive knowlede, which has been a life saver for a
novice like myself. I too like the bold coloured irises, JIs in particular
and have many weird combos. I like to plant pinks/apricots with dark
blues/purples, looks wild....My favourite wild coloured TB is Notorious and
perhaps second is Epicentre...At the moment though everything is starting to
rot/go mouldy as we have had a lot of rain/humidity and today extreme
...heat..The uv rays are biting...So Welcome..From Wendy
