But I don't feel like planting today!
Hi fellow iris lovers,
I went to the SFVIS meeting on Thursday, because I could not resist the opportunity to meet and hear the hybridizer Jim Hedgecock. What a horrible mistake!
Jim was fantastic, of course, but I won his gorgeous new Spuria intro called 'Backlit' and caught Spuria fever. Now it's time to plant 'Backlit', two 'Gilded Chalice', 'Dandelion Smile', 'St. Patrick's Gold', and a Louisiana iris called 'Malibu Magic', and I have no place for any of them. As a matter of fact, my existing Louisianas are suffering from overcrowding and must be divided, but dragging them out of my stinky icky pond filled with leaf litter from last week's Santa Ana winds has sucked the wind right out of my sails.
Why did I do it? Why?
