It’s not the best time to dig iris but when you have brokered an iris rhizome trade with a nursing home worker friend then you just do it. So at 9:00 at night I am digging in the garden right before a rainstorm.

This is the one iris that the trader wanted from me. I can not find its name but I called it carnival.

Champagne is the name of this iris variety. I found it on the company site hoping to find the name of the company that I bought it from.

This large lab came to visit the grandma of the family. He is very friendly and appears to be easy going. When the owner said the words “bye, bye “ he tore out at the direction of the door like a bulldozer. Tables and chairs were cleared out of his way instantly. He looks like he gets plenty to eat.

What are you trading for...maybe a red Iris:)

Beautiful flowers.

I know people love it when dogs and other pets visit the home. It is such a relief from the boredom there.
