Hi fellow iris lovers,
My name is Renee, and I can't get enough iris photos. I found this forum through Polly K on Facebook and Gardenweb, and now I will be able to enjoy myself for a loooooong time, because so many of you are exceptional photographers. Thank you to each of you for taking the time to post here and to help educate us as gardeners. I look forward to reading your posts and drooling over your irises.

Glad you came over to the dark side away from DG of the past; I stopped being a member 2-3 years ago and never looked back as under the new management it is not as good as it was before

I am learning to accept my geezer moments and don't let it bother me anymore. Oh well, glad I have name tags on my irises. Smiling

Here's the story: The garden hose is my nemesis. It refuses to be a good sport; it catches on chunks of broken concrete that I scatter about as retaining walls, pieces of flagstone that I toss onto my garden paths, and bricks that I line beds with. It kinks, it nooses tender plants, it resists mating with the upsy-downsy sprinkler or any other perfectly acceptable companion. It leaves brown snaky spots on my lawn and allows itself to be used as an ant superhighway to my arms. It wads itself up into a knot and tries to break my hips. It overturns potted plants and scares the dog. Some day soon the hose will pay: I have discovered that PVC can be run above ground, and the hose shall soon be reduced to a mere supporting role in the garden.

I need to update that album. Meanwhile, I have been enjoying all of your photos!

I understood your name right away. Finally, after so many years, my husband says, why not put a board up and have the main hose attached to it (some 200 feet), and run some smaller hoses off from it. I would buy the cheap hoses, they kink. I buy the expensive good ones, and they are too heavy to move around.

Your garden is just fantastic, as I've told you before. Between you and Brenda, I have gotten so many good ideas from your photos.

So glad you're here, Renee!

In the spring there was an article on hoses. The recomendation was Rubber,sure its heavy but it doesnt kink.

I am considering a drip system.

Renee!! you have a wonderful way of expressing exactly what we all go thru.

Lovely pictures, but I didn't see the hose. Is it shy? We have a drip system which is sort of ugly & the weeds get stuck under it. We are lucky not to have to use it for some years. But since our seedlings are lined out, not landscaped it is easier for us.

Oh, Lucy. The evil hose sneaks into my photos all of the time, even more than the local camera hog, Sam the Dog. I never notice until I'm about to post the photo. Ugh.

Mikey bought me three skinny $60.00 moss-brown colored hoses from Gardener's Supply, and although they kink a bit, I am able to carry them, and they kill fewer plants. I do so object to that neon-turquoise/aqua color that hose manufacturers try to pass off for green!

Polly, there are two gardens that dictated my future and sent me into my current state of obsession: Brenda's and Regina's. I try to maintain other interests, but the garden always trumps them. I have become a one-dimensional creature. Thank goodness for all of you fellow gardeners out there or I would be boring my local friends and family to death!
