Hi,! My names Arlyn..(the crow, in crow rita1) Rita, shes my wife..( the #1 in crowrita1).We've been gardening and growing a lot of iris for a long time. I retired Jan.1st, and now it,s become an addiction! We recently moved down the street to a new home, and have been busy landscaping and adding new beds. I've made an offer on a property that adjoins ours..no house..2 car garage...3 lots, total..If I,m succesful, well, the addiction grows!!! ...later...Arlyn Hilarious!

Grandchildren are my greatest joy.
Welcome Arlyn......I appreciate everyone who chats here but it is nice to have another man's point of view. Warning....you will find other shameless addicts here including myself. I envy "new beds". Iris love new soil....where they haven't grown before. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Welcome, welcome, Arlyn.

Here's hoping you get the new beds, um property, LOL. Please keep us posted. And we will enable you to get more iris.

I was able to retire at age 57, luckily, and I've gone nuts with iris since.

Welcome Arlyn. Here's how it goes:

"Hi. My name is Arlyn. I'm an Iris addict". And then everyone says "Hi Arlyn".

See how that works? Rolling on the floor laughing

So, are we going to hear from Rita also, under your avatar, or will she join too? Or isn't she a forum person?

Sounds like you've got yourself a good woman, there, Arlyn. Personally I try to get Russ to be in charge of weeds, but it often fails us.
