Very pretty! Thumbs up Do you grow a lot of rebloomers? I would think that in your zone you would get fairly reliable fall bloom.....Arlyn

a bunch of snowballs and daylilies and two XXL roses to dig last minute. Oh yea, I have
three Camellia's also they are blooming now Smiling

Shannon - the second picture (the one on the right of your original post) is not Again & Again. That iris looks more like an IB or a small flowered TB of old. Here is "Again & Again".

Luckily you stayed in VA as RI got clobbered by sandy. So much of the state is water. Snow in OH as well as parts of W.VA. We only had an inch of rain, more wind than rain here & we are not on the water.

Lucy how are you? See Sandy is starting to claim down. Do you know about Maryland as the news is not saying much.

Lost power overnight but otherwords no problem. We had bought food which didn't need to be refrigerted & ir power outage had continued would have p-nut butter or apple butter sandwiches. However no need.

Sandy you will have to find some way to protect your camellias in RI. they are not reliably hardy north of NJ.
