Thanks Mike,

Aside from a couple of nicks on two or three, all the pods survived.
I found a dozen or more pods this morning. Considering how little
daubing I've done compared to most years, the rate of success is
really surprising.

On reflection I thought my reaction was a classic one for someone who
indulges in daubing. We grow iris for the blooms, right? But when
the hail was falling, it wasn't the blooms or buds that came caused
the most worry, it was the pods. They aren't even particularly
attractive! :).
