Yup, I wanted to tell Dennis that this list hops during the summer
when there are lots of proplems and wonderful blooms out in the
garden and people are making all kinds of obsevations etc. I am
sitting here looking out at my iris leaves peeking above the leaves
I have mulched their bed with and thinking nothing much is
happening. I have noticed that other people are doing this too. Tom
did say that he thought the communications in this list should be
like a chat about growing irises over the back fence. You can't get
textbook type instruction from a group like this anyway.
