I have been going back and forth about ordering.There are 5 I could order which would be
1.Easy on the Eyes
2.Hello Romance
3.Simply Fabulous
4.Power of Dreams
5.Sunset Boulevard
and I would probably get Black's intro 'Autumn Jewel 'as no.6.to make $100
Any intro's I would really want are not available.

I am leaning not ordering at the moment.I would have to dig up more sod and am really running out of room plus more $.

I didn't place an order this year so I didn't get the "list".

Timothy, fantastic order!

Jan, you are definitely an enabler!!
I wanted to ask you when I made out my list about some of them, because I was aware you had some of them.
I had about decided to not order a few minutes ago.I thought maybe I would let the clock run out.
Then I just saw your post!! Whistling
Only a day to order now,So Confused

PS :Your picture of Hello Romance is really a pretty one for sure and makes it very Tempting!

Yes, Jan ,do.I haven't ordered .There is another year ,and I think 60 new iris are plenty.
I received my last 9 new iris in the mail yesterday evening.I still need to get them in the ground.
Now if I can maintain will power for another 5 hours. Crossing Fingers!
Your Picture of HR is haunting me as the time passes nodding

Update: I survived TEMPTATION and didn't order.Maybe I am on the road to iris addiction recovery! Sure!

Dachsylady86 said:Hi Evelyn! I promise to check in soon. I've been so swamped on the farm and with the business. I'm also in the process of building a new 4 bed/3 bath house on the property. It's exhausting.


Hi Liz,

It's been a while....tomorrow I consult with the surgeon regarding a hip replacement, so I have been out of the garden since July! (DH watering...)

So while you have been busy, I have been waiting for surgery, and possibly a second one on my right knee that was replaced years ago. I wish you success in all of your endeavors! Crossing Fingers! Thumbs up Group hug
