Don't Juno what flower that is?


Iris graberiana 'yellow falls'



Iris hoogiana 'white falls'

The light was really good in the greenhouse after work today. Been super mild temps in the 50's and 60's. Its fun to look back at last years blogs and see that we had a huge snowstorm this week last year and late frosts that nuked the potatoes. I guess that's one of the things I love about gardening, you have to deal with variables that you can't control.

Cheers,
Mark

    That post is from a long time before your's Mark! I guess great minds flow in similar channels...

    BTW--you wrote Iris hoogiana above: surely a mistake since Iris hoogiana is an Aril iris. I think you meant to write I. graeberiana again (you just don't like repeating yourself either)... Great pix, great plants!

  2. Haha, Acantholimon, I swear I thought I came up with that clever little play on words just the other day, but I will agree that great minds think a like and give credit where it is due.

    I actually wrote Jane about that Hoogiana thing....it didn't seem right to me. I had gotten some stuff from hoog before and I wasn't sure if it was something I hadn't seen....I'll make the correction soon...thanks again. Mark
