It's a really cute dark one Ken. You are on the way. We need to fix that shortage of little ones though! I think I can help!

I am always open on swap, trade or whatever. Got the iris bug a couple years ago, but it has been mostly tall ones so far.

First one to open...Flavescens

Thumb of 2014-06-02/bramedog/cc4ec4

Soon to come...This bed is growing a couple feet wider this year as the lilies have gotten bigger and iris's need to be divided... and some new ones are coming.

good plan Ken. Just leave room for the gardener to weed and let the plants run riot! lovely iris.
My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts.

Wizard of Odds ready to open with so many others.

I am fraught with anticipation.

Thought I would share these pics. I was out riding my bike yesterday and the buffalo were up by the fence at Oleson's buffalo farm. What an awesome animal.

These were blooming out in a meadow. I am guessing they are a type of Phlox? Not the greatest pic.

Love the rocks you have used as a border in your bed!!! Hubby and I once several years ago took a couple of hours driving down dirt roads in the Hale, Mi area looking for boulders. We had a whole trunk load by the time we were finished looking.

I live only a few miles from where the white buffalo was born a couple years back, if anyone heard that news back then. It was quite the event around here.

Oh yes Tom, it was big news here as we have a couple native american tribes that are nearby.

Mary Ann... yes they are losing there winter coat.

Cynthia, every time I go out to the woods I end up picking up them rocks with my pickemup truck! Rolling on the floor laughing They do may a nice border. My friends girlfriend grew up in Hale, MI. She is a Schulte, if you know the last name.
