Reading, knitting, quilting and the 50,000 other little things I do to keep my brain working.

Do you know what this is? This is a hell of a lot of iris.
I had a day off today, so I tackled the iris bed. They've been there about ten years now, so it was quite thick in there. About an hour and half later, I had the above, nice and clear.
As you can see, I added some back at the front of the bed (the peas now being gone by), and I've covered the area where they were with a modified lasagna garden layering of newspaper and leaves. I'll be leaving that there for the rest of the season before I decide what to do with the opened up space next year.
I do still have iris left. They're curing the garage. I'll reassess if I can add more in a few days, and give away the rest.
