We were up at a music festival most of last week, and just got back yesterday. I had an email saying my order from Napa Country Iris Garden had been sent. They arrived today, and I must say they are some of the nicest rhizomes I've received. I usually stick my new arrivals into 1 gallon containers, but I decided that 3 of the 7 that I received needed 2 gallons... I probably should have been doing laundry, but I'd much rather pot up some big fat rhizomes nodding

So, in this order I got:
Tobacco Chew (what's not to love about *that* beard?)
Filoli (because I used to work there)
Almaden (because it's sort of just over the hill from us)
Moonlit Water (sooooo pretty)
New Face (saw this one at a slide presentation @ one of our meetings)
Montmartre (because everyone else is showing gorgeous pictures of it)
Sordid Lives (bonus)
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

'Tobacco Chew' was one that had a couple little increasing "budlets" on the rhizome.. Really looking forward to this one.. This is my year for beards.. Well, last year was too..
This is my first order w/ Napa, and I'm very pleased.
