Wonderful photo of a great plant.

Gee Pirl, you grow these too. Your garden must be so full of color! I just love these. What colors in that photo!

Currently I have about 200 JI's. It's great in June and July.

Rub it in! First lobster rolls and now these.

Oh 200, incredible! I like these so much more than bearded iris.

You may find it shocking but I enjoy the lobster bisque even more than the lobster roll.

I like the JI's more, too. They don't fall over in the wind and bloom for a longer period of time. They increase so much faster than TBI's.

And they are so elegant!

I too may like the lobster bisque more if I had a chance to enjoy it! Not big on the West coast.

Well I am home and resting a minute before I cook, a rare event. LOL

What's for dinner?

(Zone 9b)

LOL. I lucked out yet again! I bought chicken and hamburger meat (both fast) and gave my husband a choice, being such a good wife. He picked hamburger and then I said slyly, do you want your baked bean/hamburger chili instead? Knowing he loves that (a childhood thing his Dad would make) and he is the one that cooks it for I do not eat it. And he said YES. So now I do not have to cook till Sunday night but since we have gone out for the last 4 Sunday nights, chances are.............................

Am I not the worst wife you know? And for someone who does not cook, I am so fat!

I hear him chopping his onions in the kitchen! LOL

There's a kitchen magnet that says: No man was ever killed while he was washing the dishes. I bet that's true for a man cooking as well.

You just enjoy eating out compared to cooking. That sounds sane enough to me and it does not make you a bad wife.

(Zone 9b)

Sadly, I am lacking in a few other areas too. LOL

I'd bet your husband wouldn't want a Stepford wife.

(Zone 9b)

You are so sweet, Pirl! Some things are best left unasked! LOL

Perfection in a person equals boredom for everyone else.
