Aw, again, I'm very sorry about the rotten weather you had. I know that
right after my iris stop blooming, I look forward to seeing them again.
It's what helps me survive the long winters here. I've had what I consider
pretty high losses some years, but nothing like you've had. I started out
with 25 TB's back in the early 80's and lost most of them the first winter,
all Dykes winners of course. Then, I discovered the dwarfs and medians and
my success rate was much better. I still don't have great success with
TB's, aside from the old Historics.
Surprisingly, I got those gargoyles at a local supermarket. I have about 15
of them, in various sizes, from a few inches tall to a few feet tall.
Overall, there's 100+ statues around my garden.
