Re: Iris blooming, photos, kiwi visitors.
Sonya - What a delight to hear of your full bloom and nice weather!
It is especially nice when they are predicting snow flurries here
Congratulations on your success in showing your iris! I think the
first time is the most exciting and you're right - your success will
encourage you to continue to show in the future. Showing iris is lots
of fun as long as you don't take it too seriously.
"Garden Rambling" - what a delightful expression! I'll have to
remember that one to use in the future. Can you really see 20 gardens
in one day? I love to visit other gardens.
I agree - there's always room for one more plant. I have a box of
spring flowering bulbs to plant now and don't know where I'll put them
all, but I'm sure I'll find room somewhere. I did get a little
carried away at ordering time.
Please keep us posted as your garden season progresses.
