Re: Weather

Ellen:  I thought NW Iowa weather was bad and gave such a long 
winter, but you make our territory a veritable banana belt.  This 
winter here already lasts too long for my aging bones; the best thing 
about a long winter is that it gives you plenty of time to pour over 
the seed/nursery catalogs.  Too bad the iris catalogs aren't around 
during that time.  The winter here would be more bearable without the 
constant wind--nothing between here and the North Pole that would 
stop wind, it seems--and it sounds like you are very exposed to the 
same thing.  At least if you have a good snow cover you don't have to 
worry about winter hurting your iris.

then some!)
