Image In the beginning....The Blue Flag
By Sharon Brown on May 13, 2010

It's been a long time since I lived in the mountains of southeast Kentucky, and a very long time since I transplanted wild Blue Flags from the side of one of those mountains into my great Aunt Bett's back yard. To me they were beautiful, to her, they were medicinal. Some things are not meant to be forgotten.

Sharran, sorry to be MIA for so long. I've been 3 weeks getting over sinus.

I'm so happy that you rode down Memory Lane. I'd be hard pressed to walk too! I'll be excited to see if your iris grow. I love bringing home ''free'' flowers! We've had rain rain rain! My daylilies should be spectacular and the astilbe are just opening. New mosquitos are hatching out and we had just gotten rid of the first batch! Rats!

The garden is small this year, but I put the last of the spinach in the freezer that I'm going to. We've eaten so much I should be a bit green, LOL! I certainly didn't get any new muscles yet!

Look forward to running across you again in other forums, but I'm having trouble keeping up again!

BP.....just keep on trying, and be sure to click on 'watch' if there's something that interests you. It also helps to click 'join this cubit'. That way you won't get lost for long.

I'll come find you if you go missing, so no need to worry.
Be well...sorry about the sinus thing.

versicolor does come in other colors in addition to blue. Isn't it strange, as soon as we get a favorite color, someone tries to change it. Rolling my eyes.

That is so true Lucy. People would die to get blue in roses, and daylilies. Iris hybridizers want red.

One of my favorite versicolors is Versicle. Shafer/ Sacks, of course.
