I'm at the airport (plane delayed Grumbling ) but enjoying a glass of wine while waiting for DH (he's coming from London). Looking at the catalogue, there's not a lot I don't want! My fav is Kiss the Princess. Lovey dubby

Note for Arlyn - in the Tempo Two catalogue there are comments about 'slight' or 'sweet' or even 'spicy' scents - no mention of 'cat pee'... Sticking tongue out

A friend of mine has a lot of iris, none of them are named, but when she cuts the stalks and brings them inside her husband says they smell like cat pee. I have smelt the cat pee fragrance with some of mine too.

I have a couple of plants that smell like cat pee too. The neighbors cat thinks it's a urinal. Does that count?? Whistling

Hilarious!
Just wondering if the critters stay away from that area.

Strange as this is, I have close to zero problems with critters. Not many squirrels even though I have 3 very large trees with beds under them. They only dug 3 or 4 up and left them right there, so all I had to was replant them. Rot more then makes up for the lack of critters. I do experience high rot rates. I think the extreme weather we experience here has much to do with that.

Blessings

It probably got a taste of iris. I am told that they don't taste good.
