i got impatient on waiting for the pods on my blue flags to pop, so i decided to.. well.. hack into one to see if they were doing anything at all
well.. here's a pic :)
these are obviously not ripe yet, and i'm going to continue waiting for the rest of them to pop..

it's a known fact..
i need more patience! lol
i just needed to know for sure that these ugly pods that have been sitting out there for months are actually doing something other than beind hideous :)
now i know, there are actually seeds in there.. so i'm ok with leaving the rest of them alone...for a little while longer, atleast ;)

Just kidding. Our weather ruined our Iris show, but I'm still keeping
my fingers crossed. A few yellow, a few purple and that's about it, and
we have tons of Iris.

Oh, I'm sorry, Inanda, by 'show' I meant our own Iris blooming here at the

Every year I add more Iris, so this should have been the biggest
showing, or blooming period for us ever, but the weather ruined it all.
I had gigantic whites frozen solid with buds, never to be seen again.
Well, okay, next year, but what an eternity! LOL

LOL! Glad to know I'm not the only super-impatient person on here, lol. You feel better after you dissect it, though, don't you?

Wuvie, oh no! I feel your pain! Only one tiny little iris survived the borers, for me. I really hope it blooms this year, so I 'll know what it is, but I doubt it. It's too tiny. :(
