It's Probably NOT a Good Idea to Transplant an Iris in Full Bloom
All of my yellow iris seem to have disappeared, so when I saw this one last weekend, I decided to dig it up and move it to a more prominent spot. This is what it looked like the next morning. Oops! Not a good idea.
Truth be told, I move things in full bloom all time. Usually they are just fine and I expect this one will be fine next year,too. I will just cut it off and bring it inside if there are still any blooms to open.
I always like to take pictures of bees on my flowers, so here is my first bee-on-flower pic for '08: I just love bumblebees. They are so soft and cuddly looking.
Wouldn't you just love to run your finger over that soft yellow hair?
TGIF! I don't know what I will do this weekend. DH says he is not painting this weekend. We still have three bedrooms to do. I may just paint the windows and doors since I am doing them in the same white semi-gloss as the living room and hallway. I like everything to be the same. It's much easier when you need to do a touch up.
I am pretty surprised to see by my poll, that 25% of us only paint every 16+ years. I thought I would be the only one with paint that old!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
