Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



I love irises because they are so easy to grow and they smell so good and are so beautiful. Not very far from home is a wonderful iris farm called Argyle Acres. I've never gone, so I hope to make a trek out there this weekend and see what they have to show. Should be lovely.

Irises are so pretty. Army of Dad especially likes the purple ones. We have about five different varieties of irises in our yard. Some small light purple, large purple, small dark purple, some pinkish-lavendar and some giant white ones (lots of the giant white). They're great for spring color and aroma.

I'll try and take some pictures of our irises, too. I've been working in the gardens around the house for the past two weekends before it gets hot. Now, I need to tackle the back yard. It has been pretty neglected.

    I wanna go.

    I've never seen a field of irises.

    Irises are second only to sunflowers in my opinion! Both were painted by Van Gogh and so therefore...I love them!

    Oh wow, Alli. A master gardener? I bet your yard is incredible. I've thought about taking those classes after all my kids are grown. I think it would be great to have that vast knowledge.

    I've done lots of landscaping and learned from mistakes. Still learning as a matter of fact. No greenhouse experience yet.
