Name: Stormy Valley Forge Pa I Love MAM ~ So Happy Together
LOVE SDB's and have now got a very nice collection of them going. I have them planted all along the path to my front door and can admire them as I come and go. So can visitors. LOL The mailman is quite fond of them. Love the rebloomers among them too.

Jon, the reason they are shocked at 47, is that is normally close to our hip size. No where near our age. You are younger than my children but NBOTE's.
I am Sharon from Las Vegas. DUH. I worked for Chase Manhattan for over 30 years and was hoping some of my old friends from Chase would recognize the name. Lived here since 1960. I grow whatever i can get to grow. Iris was my mother's favorite flower. I am a bearded lover because before joining DG I did not have a clue there was anything other kind of iris. I do not believe some of them will grow her in the hot desert because we mulch to preserve moisture and Irises do not like that but I have found the way. Lookout because Dee and PollyK are wicked. Pretty soon you will be robbing your neighbors recycle to get more cans to get more money for more irises. I am currently into worms, irises, day lilies and hardy hibiscus. I do have roses.
As far as running out of garden space, I have taken over three landscapes on the street and adding there when I have no room. They love it. Actually, some one stopped by and wanted to know if I would do their landscape. Sorry, I have to much on my plate. And now this.
Love you guys.
If it is not going to affect you five years from now, do not let it get you down.
First what a FANTASTIC garden tour. If it wasn't so late at night I would take it again. Sharon--did someone ask you to also try spuria. Won't flower here because of summer rain, but they have such fantastic colors.
Hi Sharon. Welcome aboard. Glad you have found a way for bearded iris to do well in Las Vegas. Sometimes some persistence and a little creativity can tip the scales in your favor. I'm also a hibiscus lover and have around 50 hybrid tropical hibiscus and two of my own hybrid creations in the collection. Discovering the multicolored hybrid hibiscus online, about 3 years ago, was the beginning of my gardening interests. About a year ago they got the attention of my younger 44 year old brother, on the west coast of Florida. Now he's just as obsessed with gardening as I am. It has brought us much closer as brothers, which is a very good thing.
Since being invited to this site I've found out a good friend of mine was booted from Dave's garden and that Dave was the one who got her booted I know a lot of people here that know her since pajaritomt was booted by Dave I cannot in good conscious remain a member of this site, to all of those who know me keep in touch and may your flowers bloom in bunches.
