Since I am digging this weekend, please send me a treemail, if I have promised any to you, so I can get back with you ASAP. Also let me know if there are others on your want list.

So far I have the following irises to check:
(I will tree mail you on the status.)

Andrea - Plot Line, I Must Have It
Barbara - Mad World, Strange Brew, Samurai Warrior, Striped Butterfly, Jumpin Jack Flash
Daisy - Expose'
Daphne - Royalty Remembered
Diana - Leroy's Silverback, Pearl Chiffon, Jennifer Rebecca, Gypsy Romance, Los Coyotes
Jan - Elegance in Blue
Monty - Midnight, Trillion, Maggie Beth
Scott - Spice Trader


I will let you know if they are ready to divide, as some grow faster than others...and I am only in my second year of harvest. Next year should be better, though some are rather pokey.

And I have a Blue Oasis coming from a 'large clump' Thumbs up so you can mark me off the list. Smiling
Thro' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing; It finds an echo in my soul— How can I keep from singing?

I had planned to dig this weekend but the temperature has been running up to 94°, with official "Feels Like" temperature up to 104°. The humidity is absolutely oppressive. Our AC has gone out, and now it looks like our freezer is going out, too. We have the freezer set to its coldest setting, and yet the ice cream is half melted. Hubby is emptying out the kitchen freezer and taking the stuff down to the basement freezer so we don't lose it all.
