Thelma has an extensive iris garden. At 95 she has trouble keeping the weeds in check, which gave rise to beautiful iris blooms coming up in a sea of daisies. A gardener's nightmare, but lovely to view.

Nice banner Leslie! If those daisies are 'weeds' then I want some in my iris patch. Weeds sometimes give us beautiful scenery & flowers. Good job! Thumbs up

To Thelma and her girls they are weeds because they take over the garden in very large patches. Some of the iris get buried under daisies. I thought the daisies were beautiful and the lone iris struck my eye. Her iris garden is over an acre in size and she rides a scooter around to look at the blooms. It's a passion that has kept her going!
