Out in the Yard--Part VIII

By R.D. Hohenfeldt

Here's one of our many irises. My wife loves irises; I'm not quite so fond of them.

She once got several sacks of irises from a woman in a plant swap group. I did not have time to plant them all, so she gave most of them away to her sister.

Nevertheless, we've got a bunch of them in the yard, and a few in pots that she got at the farmer's market. Again, I need to rework the beds. If it doesn't rain, maybe I'll get to it this weekend.

Irises are beautiful when they're blooming, but they're ugly (in my opinion) otherwise.
