Hello everyone. My garden has been going through a "downsizing" event for the past 3 years. This has been hard as to the loss and the fact that I do not have as much time to dedicate to the yard in general; but it was something I should have expected. I also had way TOO many plants to take care of. I have reduced the garden by 75%. Nature (and by that I mean weeds and thistle) did some and then I jumped in and did the rest. I need to till the old beds this year to put back to grass and redo the beds I am keeping.

I will try to post blooms in order up until this weekend. I am guessing I will be at peak this weekend. I also estimate I will have 150 bloom stalks.

The first Iris this year was "Rare Edition", as usual. I only got two bloom stalks and both were frost damaged and looked bad; so no pictures from this bloom season. So here are a couple of pictures from last year.

Try to ignore the sign in this last picture as Blueberry Treats is next to Rare Edition.

Hurray! Hurray! Lovely blooms Greg. Downsizing the garden is hard. I can only imagine how hard it was to downsize by so much.

I am guessing that you are keeping mostly Innersts and Tasco/Duncan's?

Nice to see you posting Greg.
