Subject: [iris-photos] PHOTOS:
FROLICSOME, GARDEN WHISPERS, geese at the Detroit Zoo
2 more iris pictures, but why the geese? The week before our iris sale the
club will go to the Detroit Zoo to dig up and divide the extra increase
rhizomes that will be sold at the club's fall sale. The week after the club
will go back to the zoo and replant those which did not sell out and/or plant
new irises that were purchased from Lacy Hagood in Oklahoma. Must relate to
Lacy that the club is ecstatic with the volume, including extras that you
are sending, thank you from the entire club. The dreaded geese will be off to
the sides of the iris beds pretending they are grazing. In reality they are
just waiting for us dumb humans to get out of their way so that they may get
into the new iris beds. All they do is pull up the just planted rhizome, lay
it on its side, then move on to the next just planted rhizome, lay it on its
side........ Lord only knows.
