YES, those are great pictures!

My bog iris were doing really well and growing. I thought they might even bloom in the house. Then when we got back from our weekend, they were all bent over and look horrible. I don't know if they didn't like the coffee, or the peroxide, or... if the dog got bored when we were gone and played with them!

I am going to thin them out as soon as they finish blooming so I can tag some to know what they are and gonna send you a few more different ones, Al. I pulled yours from the edges and you only got maybe 3-4 colors but I have lots of pretty colors when they open for me to see where they are. I still got light powder blue and light pink and bright clemson orange and Black game cock, and black after the storm,and a big yellow, yet to bloom. Plus all that Mitt sent me but those are not moving yet as they haven't multiplied yet.
Thank you everyone for the compliments, I love my Irises! THEN the Daylilies!!! Drooling now!

I would pot it now and keep it damp and warm. Does it have roots yet? OR is the arm you were talking about a root? I would think the arm is the leaf or limb coming out. IF you have roots plant it if NOT just leave it in water a while longer. It will be ok in water for a good while yet so don't worry about it. Just keep it warm.

Hope everyone has a blessed Easter! It's a lovely day out and I have weeds calling my name - lol. Oh, I noticed today a bud on one of my potted Brugs! I'm surprised I kept them alive yet alone have a bud;o) They are in 15 gal pots. It's either a NOID I got from Seray last year or it may be the Isabella I got from Mechelle. WIll have to dig in the pot and see if it has a tag. How long before it blooms mekos once that bud appears? I'm excited I may actually get a Brug to bloom! Unfortunately they will probably stay in pots. I don't have the patience to baby them through the summer heat and the winter cold...

Well if the bud has just started it will be a few more weeks. They grow slow when you want to see color. Go figure. Give it plenty of brug feed now and plenty of water and it will just set the most buds and be beautiful. Can't wait to see it. Mine are putting out but I did not dig them or bring inside for winter, they stay out and are slow starting out again. But I see green coming out so maybe not too much longer.

It's a shame when such a beautiful bird is taken out by an airplane. Unfortunately bird collisions are quite common and very dangerous for both the bird and the airplane, and not much can be done to prevent it. A couple of years ago a New York passenger flight was taken down after hitting a flock of Canada geese and made a dramatic splashdown landing in the Hudson river. Luckily everybody survived but the goose.

Birds are always a problem, though. I have had personal encounters with crows, pigeons, seagulls, geese, and even a wild turkey once. Not to mention a host of smaller birds in flocks. Any pilot will try to avoid them as best they can, but that's not always possible. Kind of like trying to avoid deer on the highway.

I was very sad to hear that they confirmed that it was the female from the Norfolk nest that was killed, hunting for her babies. That was the 1st ever Eagle Cam I ever watched. This year I have been mostly following the one in Decorah, Iowa but check in on the Norfolk ones occasionally. Very sad. I hope the Dad is able to finish raising them but I guess it's wait and see right now.

nettie ... we have had about 2.75" here at my house since Sunday which is a perfect rain in my book. Had time to soak in and really do something beneficial. East of us around Muskogee had upwards of 13" and that came your way. Where exactly are you? I know you have mentioned Ft. Smith in some posts.

I was glad with my procrastination of getting my plants taken outside last weekend. We had pea to marbel size hail yesterday evening that covered the ground so much it looked like snow!!!!! It would of beaten them all to death. I stand by my rule here not to put anything out until May 1st. You just can't trust our weather. Although the nice rain we have been having would of been good for them, it would of been for naught after that hail!!!!

Really bad storms coming through tonight. Tornados wiped out Tuscaloosa Alabama , killed many, and another went through Birmingham on the ground not sure on damages there yet, but is bad.In Ga, now and NC now and one headed for us in a few minutes should be here.They said it was coming 60MPH and the wind has just started gusting bad. It supposed to be here around 1:20 am, and we are under a watch till around 5:00 am . Some places got hit bad already and more coming. Be safe everyone. Take cover and pray.

That's why I've been out for the last 5 days. Since I'm a retired design engineer with NYSDOT, I get called for bridge watch duty during storms. Our team has 153 bridges in 3 counties to watch for damage and flood control. It's a lot of work, and a lot of travel time. So far we haven't made out too bad for damage, but some of our bridges are nearing flood stage. Creeks and valley streams are really high right now. I'll probably be out for another week or so.

Guess what I've done now...I posted on freecycle for irises, told folks I would come over and rework their iris beds if I could have the extra loot.
So, this lady gives me her phone number - her husband passed 15 years ago and LOVED irises. I am going over there tomorrow to start to work...I can't imagine how many irises were lost due to neglect, climate changes or whatever, they are gone now. But I get to have starts of everything that is left; at one time they were show quality flowers. I am excited and kicking myself in the rear at the same time!!

We had a trade in process when she passed away last year. Her son Andy contacted me and asked if he could send me a bunch of his Mom's bulbs. This was one of them and it is even more special because of the circumstances under which I acquired it. If I ever do a memorial garden it will get moved there in honor of Dianne.

LMBO ... that's what I thought. I kept telling her that, but she was afraid to take any that I dug up, afraid it might jinx her. It was a hoot. She always went with me though.

So many of those old cemetaries don't have any family that tend to the graves anymore, so I felt I was doing a service, and my pay was the 'leftovers'. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!!!

You hit the nail on the head. He was a jerk at the end. But you know what they say, what goes around comes around. He will get his just reward. (snickering evily)

Oh, and come around it does! Karma will get ya every time.

Actually, I have thought about doing the same thing in the cemetaries here. Most are little bitty rural cemetaries and the families are either all there (in the cemetary) or have long ago moved off. We had thought seriously about planting peonies on my dad's grave in Colony KS. The whole family is there and of course when I meet my demise, that is where I will go as well. Since we live 5 hours away we didn't figure a new plant would do well- the mowers would probably chop it off anyway - how nice it would be to have someone that would watch over the plantings. I would really like things to be pretty when I have to move in there.

IMHO the other thing to consider is most anything growing in the old cemetaries is old. The old varieties should be cherished - if you want to prowl the cemetaries let me know, I will come up and visit - you are only 2 hours away!

good morning all! I am sure glad they finally got him Mekos but I wouldn't expect soldiers home any time soon. I seriously doubt that the whole thing is over - however, the USA made great strides yesterday! We are one nation under God - the president said so!
I was so proud of his speech I even shed a tear!

That sounds like a good plan enid. We will have to prowl around and find some old country cemetaries that need 'tending to'.

I'm so glad I have procrastinated about moving my stuff outside. Calling for 38* here tonight.

I bet some shark has a belly ache today! They said their religion says they have to do something with the body within 24 hours. Shark food sounds good to me.

Those roll over ads are a pain! I get hung up on those all the time Nettie.

Lots of cemetaries that need lookin after here Crit, we could even meet half way and go to jail in some town we have never heard of! Can they arrest us for that? Graveyard plant robbing? Would make a great headline anyway.

I can't believe they are calling for frost, I didn't wait...soon as it warmed up the plants got moved out - hope they survive - I am not going out to cover them tonite, I am way too tired.

Several years ago, Tubby sent me some seeds, and I have tried ever since to get those darn things to sprout and grow with no luck what so ever, but for some reason, this spring ever one of those seeds that I started inside sprouted and are growing. I didn't start too many of them, but you can bet those little seedlings that are now growing are going to get lots of loving care, as they now mean just that much more to me :-) Thanks Tubby! Bless you and rest in peace, my friend.

Nettie, I would leave the arm out and just plant about half way up the log. The roots will go deeper as it grows. You'll have to show us a picture of it Nettie.
Guess what everyone? I have been feeling bad and my kidneys are trying to quit on me again so for a few days I been sluggish and not doing much at all. Well , WHO knew Santa runs around in MAY?
NEW mail lady came today bringing me a package with the most gorgeous Gladiolus bulbs!
THANKS SANTA!!!!!! I wish you all could see the beautiful colors they will bloom! Amazing.

Nettie, take a benadryl tablet and that may help with whatever you got in your eyes. Maybe too much pollen from all your working out pulling weeds. YOU be careful and don't over-do. I feel some better today. Gotta go get my test results now. back later.
Beautiful day out today after the rain last night. Supposed to be cooler today too.

Hey thought you all might like to read something cute!


So, Bin Laden is now standing before God waiting to hear his punishment, when God gets a tap on his shoulder. There behind HIM stands 343 Firemen, 72 Police Officers, 1 K-9 Officer, 3000+ American Citizens, and over 5000 American Soldiers... " Dont worry Father, WE GOT THIS!!!

Happy Mother's Day weekend coming up, everyone! This one should be a very thankful one!

I love Nettie cause she stays in Arkansas! I am pretty sure if she got any closer to me that mean little gun toting woman would get me in lots of trouble! LOL Love you Nettie!

I saw the most remarkable thing yesterday evening about 8 p.m. - my windmill was completely still - we had no wind, not even a little puff of air - that hardly ever happens in Oklahoma!

Well, back to my search of the Claverack iris sold by J & J Iris in 1979 - I can't find much info on it, it isn't even listed here.
