When I lived in Fresno they attached every pastel iris I had.

Have anyone else noticed that the Japanese Beetles seem to go for the whites - even on an amoena or reverse amoena - and the very pale yellows?  I never had them here in Southern California before last year.  Here is a picture of them in my garden on Two Below Zero.

Well, rats!  My old Kodak just can't handle white very well.  By the
time I got home from work, I had to take half a dozen Japanese beetles
off to get this shot.  This summer maiden is 39.5 inches with nine buds
today.  Three in the lowest socket, so I expect more in a few days.
The leaf on this stalk has no branch, so it's a looong way up to the
branching in the photo.  Hopefully just another example of maiden
misbehaving and not the influence of LW.
