Iris season was just about a bust for me. With the high winds we endured during the early part of the bloom season, I lost about a hundred bloom stalks -- snapped right off. Spent a fortune on stakes, trying to salvage what was left. Then, about the time that the winds calmed down, I had to leave for an extended trip -- during which most of my Irises bloomed. Sad By the time that I got back, most everything was done except a few stragglers and late bloomers. I did get to see a few new-to-me ones though -- Starring, Red Hawk, Edith Wolford, Fringe of Gold -- every one of them a treasure!!

So -- I'll do my garden work -- thinning, trimming, weeding, feeding -- and dream about next year. Sigh.
Every day is a second chance. Every day is precious time.
