well, it definitely gives a uniqueness to your
mails, Betty, with all these "
? " everywhere.

it could almost be a style,
quite evasive, like nothing is for certain...!

or as it you were on a heavy
dose of sedative, or pain killers...which could
be possible !

Think i will
start posting pictures of non -rebloomers now, just to make
spring come
faster....what about that?

  All of the above? ;-(?
  It wouldn't work here, but certainly an idea worth trying other places.?
  Visualize a <big> pile of dirt - cut it in half, leaving a vertical face
the cut side, scrape the other half of the pile away. Then put my house
up against the base of the flat side of the pile, plant trees all around
and all over the hill. Then put a lightbulb (i.e., the sun)on the side of
hill <opposite> the house.?
  It really doesn't matter what side of
the house I plant things on when the
sun doesn't get here till mid morning or
later & the entire yard is in shade
most of the day. Well, used to be before
the microburst this spring.....?
  The gravel rows are right in front of
the house, parts are shaded till
nearly noon, some parts get sun quite a bit
earlier. I've not noticed any
difference in timing of bloom of the cultivars
that are planted in several
places; however, my bloom season tends to be one
or two weeks <later> than
that of everybody else in the same general area. So
bloom is already delayed
by location.?
  Unfortunately, the factors that
delay bloom are the same ones that freeze
the snot out of early bloomers. Iris
in shade near the house usually don't
bloom much - germanica right next to the
house under eaves sometimes is
protected enough to bloom, but it also
tolerates being buried in leaves and
heavy rain runoff from the roof.?
Yes! A big tent would be ideal!! Know where I could get one big enough for
entire iris patch??
  And a crew of circus people to put it up and take it
down between
  Neil Mogensen also suggested buying a gigantic
fan to keep the air moving,
but that wouldn't do any good when temperatures
are below 25 or so.?
  What <does> work, is covering everything with
Reemay for the late freezes,
starting ~6 weeks before expected bloom, but
that's getting to be too hard for
me to do. I'm still covering some, but less
and less each year.?
  Just discovered the tin roof is leaking (again), so
maybe I should look into
a circus tent big enough to include the house....?
  <No, you don't think it's an idea worth trying, or you don't have?a space
the east and west side of your house or other building to try?? <g>? Just
trying to help here.??
  Maybe?one of those portable tents to place over a
section?? This might
work?early spring and then summer for rebloom!???My
neighbor moves her
tent?across the garden as she works.??
  I'm getting
bloom (rebloom) on the east side of my house, but there is a
gravel driveway
on the west side.? The only way to put plants there would be
to set some of
the pots on the driveway and against the house.? Not a fair
  <<Bottom line, no, I don't think so <g>?>>?
