2.Edge of Eternity-Intro
It rained again today.The iris are starting to pile up on me with all the boxes arriving together..I looked at the area I dug up sod for them,and realized the area will not be big enough especially with all the gift and bonus iris I am getting.That means I have to dig more sod up to get everything planted.

Oh, and 6 new daylilies- - - -
May the ground be soft beneath you,
and May the drainage be always sufficient.

KyDeltaD said:Thanks Wheezy for the wish!
Just wish I can find the time now to plant them and dig more sod up.
Everyday day until Tues.is tied up with drs.appts.for mother or visits/ lunch out with 3 of my grown kids.
I am unpacking and soaking the roots for a day ,and hope this keeps them from drying out .
In the past ,I have always gotten them in the ground within a few days.
48 iris is a big investment,and a lot to keep waiting to plant.I hope they will be ok.
