Griff that is awful!!! Those irises need to
be carrying baseball bats so they can knock those containers in another
direction. LOL (Poor things)
Winds were gusting here yesterday too. It
blew over a palm tree in a pot, but fortunately not on any irises. We had
a tall Mesquite tree in the front yard topple over from winds last year.
fortunately no real damage done that time either.

The weather isn't done with us yet. I went
to bed last night concerned about the torrential rains, but awoke to roaring
winds. On arising, I found that the trash collectors had been here
early, and two empty heavy plastic containers had been blown 30-40 feet into
the front garden, where they had snapped off several bloomstalks and crushed
others. One way or another, it seems Mother Nature will get in her
licks. -- Griff
