Nice photo, Donald. Yours has much stronger contrast between the bands
of color than mine do. Undoubtedly due to natural selection in your
stronger sunshine <g> Mine are more dark pinkish brown on pinkish brown.
It's usually still chilly enough this time of year that they <should>
still be asleep, but it was 80oF yesterday, and as the day wore on, I
was getting more and more squeamish about reaching into the masses of
dead iris leaves and weeds. I guess I'd better start poking around with
a forked hoe until I can see where my hands are going.
