It is an old fashion variety. I think this is the one I think of when I think of traditional iris. The origin is unknown ffor me but I bet I got it from my parents place in southern Iowa.
I need to insert that we have moved into hot weather. I mowed yesterday afternoon and was huffing and puffing. I didn't realize that it had warmed up to 81 degrees, F. I am so use to wearing a coat while mowing so I didn't realize I wasn't over tired but over heated.
I collected grass yesterday and spread it around all the plants. It works really well for mulch and it made the bed look like a disaster. We got a rain in the night again and the tomatoes will really grow big now. I saw the neighbor lady on her balcony and told her I got our tomatoes planted. She knows that I will be sharing a lot of them to her on the fence top railing.
My wife had a conference call with her doctor yesterday so I went into the back yard for a while. I discovered that I usually pull water grass out of the iris and it was time to do so.I really didn't get all of the grass pulled but you can see the trail I left behind.
The mower with the grass collector helped me clean up the scraps. It was nice to get that done. I need to return but we have rain this morning. I don't like working in wet grass. My neighbor saw that I was rained out at the old place on Wednesday so he finished up my mowing in the street's ditch. I am sure he watched me load my mower up in a down pour leaving in defeat. I really had mowed most everything that made it look good just not all of it.
Later the little boy was up on the floor and really exploring the area. Later then the dad was sitting up in the tower with his son. It would have made a great photo but I I know that I couldn't do that. This house actually balances out the view of the playhouse on the other side of the fence.
Our friend needs us to take her to treatment sessions the next two days. I want to work outside this morning but it has to dry out first. More lifting of bricks and straightening of edges of the patio. I will be glad to get it done. Thanks for stopping by this Thursday.
