I have a few glass icicles too, a few different kinds. Some are very fragile.

Mary Ann - I will get some of the varieties out and take a pic. I didn't put up a tree this year. Had an image of new scared cat and tree - not a pretty thought.

I DID go to the Christmas Store in Frankenmuth, just forgot the name of the town although we stayed there overnight. What a place!!! The bubble lights do have a liquid in them that bubbles although most of ours have lasted through the years. Never knew what was inside of them. Some bubble faster than others. Most of our lights are ancient but I buy a new set of the minis every year after Christmas so we always have a working set.
Fragile ornaments take such special care but I pack them in bubble wrap or in tissue individually.

Jan, not new but I don' t spend much time in the flower specific forums., I do peruse the Recent Threads and occasionally jump in if something catches my interest. I have a couple of irises and love their wonderful fragrance and regal stature. Back to topic, I recently started trimming mine back about mid summer and have found it helps keep things neater and shows me which ones are overcrowded. Mine tend to get over run with creeping buttercup and corydalis. I welcome the corydalis, which addsan airy look and does not seem to compete with the iris, but the buttercups are my weed-bane.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
