Can't imagine having to protect irises from the sun
in my little part of the world !
It sometimes even looks like i'd better plant rice
here instead of irises !
Thanks Francelle to open my understandind of other
This is again a proof ( as if we would still need
any ) of the role this groop can play!And even if i envy
the size of your seedlings, i can imagine not having real seasons must be quite
tiring with an non stop growth of weeds!
But here also, even with a bit of frost, weeds are
always here to keep you alert!
I'll be crawling on my kees all

Here are the three rows that I planted this winter.
The one on the right was planted Dec. 9.
I had to take the cover off to remove weeds. I have
just a little better than 50% germination in it now, and I am hoping that
there are more to come. As usual there is great difference
in the germination of different crosses. I am very
disappointed in Wearing Rubies X Pink Champagne. Though
both of these are vigorous irises in my garden, only seven of thirty seeds are
up, and they look very small and weak. The Cloud Reflection
babies seem large and vigorous. Only the largest are
visible in this picture. They are 2 ½ inches high and have
white poles are for holding up a six foot high shade screen that I will roll
out to protect them when the temperature goes to 110+
