The Iris are opening. I originally bought the iris for 3 water lily ponds but here in Tucson the bees took over the ponds and I was devastated. So we filled in the ponds—put the water lilies in the back in a huge galvanized tub and let the bees go at it. I can see the water lilies when they bloom looking out my kitchen window. I took all the marginals and planted them in the pond beds. They are growing really tall and beautiful. Not everything has bloomed yet so I will wait to see what I end up with. Mother Nature constantly surprises me with colors that are nothing like I planted. Jokes on me!!
From time to time
