Great to meet you, Sylvain!! I am enjoying looking through your blog posts! Where are you located in France and what are the conditions in your region?

Greetings Sylvain I admit that I had to turn to translate on your blog. Some of the irises have not lost popularity but others are being seen--we seem to vote for the 'new' And climates make a difference. For Example 'Silverado' & its seedlings are not happy here in New England, but it is still a nice iris, just not in our climate. Then there is 'Jesse's Song' which as you note is still popular because it grows everywhere.

We see tall bearded, but prefer the medians.

Welcome Sylvain, thank you for posting.

I hope you will stick around with us a little and see what the cubit is all about.

Do you speak English well enough you don't have to have the cubit translated? I was just commenting how Americans are really lacking in learning other languages.

We wait until we are too old. Languages should be learned in the 'mimic' stage of language development. Crying

Well, I finally got some time to poke around the cubits site and found ya'll:lol:

I'm Donna--dmac here/dmac085 at DG for a few years now. I'm in NC, have worked for Wmart since 94 (run Sporting Goods area--like job and coworkers). Have two pets currently though it has been subject to change from time to time. One cat, grey tabby named Velvet by a former roommate. I would have named her Velcro because once her little claws dig into your clothes/skin she's stuck. I also have a rabbit that I found one day out in my containers after Easter--someone abandoned their Easter bunny!
He's orange and white and is a little thug. Couldn't come up with a name so I just referred to him as "Rabbit" so that's what he answers to now.

Iris--love em. Have for a long time but only in the past 3 years or so started buying named iris from reputable sellers. Tried the eBay thing but got burned (as recently as 2009 in a weak moment:lol:). I buy like I have a back 40 but really am in a townhome with one front flower bed, a bjillion container plants and the "new bed" I've taken to digging and planting along the side of my unit:lol:

I've got about 15-20 planted and looks like this won't be a great bloom year. I unfortunately have oodles I didn't get to plant from fall purchases but I'm patient and will give em a soak and get them in the ground and wait. I share with my friends who garden but that really is only a couple of ladies from work. Ya'll here and at DG are my "garden/iris talk" outlet=)

Glad to have found ya'll!

Welcome Donna. I'm so glad you found us too!

I'm kinda like you. I have friends here at home, but really no one to talk gardening with. So, I'm glad you came over to talk to us.

hiya everyone,

drdon here,

We've been growing bearded iris mostly here since being gifted a bunch from another old DG member here in southern CA. Louise ended up sending us over 250 rhizomes in a matter of a couple of years and now we've got Weegy's Iris Sea out in front of our ranch. They are just now beginning the spring flush but I never cease to be amazed at the incredible beauty of these flowers and the wonderful architecture of the plants.

nice to see some familiar names here,
don

Hi drdon, welcome! I assume you're a Doctor of some persuasion?

Can we trouble you for some pictures? An iris sea sounds exciting.

Is that teeth you're showing Kath? Is Dr Don a dentist? My daughter is one. She could fix those teeth right up, maybe file them down, cap 'em or something.

Old DG pals new Cubits friends. And yes, PollyK, I'll produce a few pics of Weegy's Iris Sea as soon as I get a break from scooping poop, mending fences, and doing that thing that spring brings.

best to all, and very nice to find this forum,
