By the way, my irises were obviously planted long ago (talking 15 years) and haven't been broken up since. Total side note: I have a theory that 15 years ago True Value was having a smashing sale on purple and yellow irises because everyone in our area has them. Last year we weeded them and didn't really get anything but this year, holy hell, Iris Ci-tay. I did end up breaking some of them up in early spring so I will see how those do next year but I am thinking I may not mess with them too much after this season because they did so well. Maybe a few snips will make it even better for next year. We'll see. It's pretty cool though.
Anyway, here are all the pictures because I want to document my happiness.
Dahlias will come up in the middle there later in the summer...that is if they don't get flooded out. Gr!
