RE: Labels

Hi Ellen!
      The map of the garden is a wonderful thing.  We tried it this year for the first time.  We numbered each iris by row and by position in the row.   We then entered each name in a journal we keep listing when the iris blooms and when it stops blooming.  This helps when you want to replant and put plants together that will be blooming at the same time.  Sorry about all the snow.  It must be kind of fun to go out and play, make a snowman, ski?  It was only 85degrees here today.  Yesterday it was 88.  I sure wish it would cool off soon.  Our plants are getting a bit confused.  Poor Babies

	On thing happened to my `mini-blind' markers last week so
	you might want to be sure they are longish and way down in the
	soil....we had very cold weather and then it became Spring again
	with 70 degrees F and the markers started heaving. 

	The ones that I had made very long stayed put...I'm going to
	try to replace the shortish ones if we ever have another thaw.

	I am thinking of Spring (which means May here) and seeing mini-
	blind markers all over the property.....I am going to double-check
	my map of the gardens...much more important than the markers to
