Storms moving in this afternoon , Neighbor is bringing in his planter to try and get me done before rain . btw - large hail , high winds + heavy rain possible , Was side dressing corn yesterday , morning . Alan was right - I was not talking to the planter very nice the other day , but it made me do it .

They are all tall bearded irises.

Here's the gallery:
https://longsgardens.com/gallery.php...=show&gazgal=7
Here's the text catalog:
https://longsgardens.com/documents/2...onlinerev2.pdf

Here's their pictures with descriptions:

The pure white one is FROSTED JULEP (on page with images 49-60)


$10.00 (MAGEE 2009) lacy white with hint o' mint


The one that is "pinky" is AGATE AWAY (on page with images 1-12) Actually it is a very faint lavender.


$12.00 (J. HALL 2013) TB 37� L
A delicate, pale lavender self with light purple veining on the falls. A good growing iris with a high bud count. Honky Tonk Blues X 97-08C (Snowy Wonderland X unknown)


Another one you might like if you're aiming for pure white (I waded the catalog for you ) I don't know why I didn't order this one instead of one of the above. Maybe they didn't have enough of them to sell last year??

VICKERMAN VALLEY (on page with images 145-153)


$12.00 (HALL, J. 2010) L Ruffled and laced white self. The red to gold veining in the hafts sets off the red to orange to yellow beards. A nice iris, white as snow. Pink Gala X Lacy Snowflake

FLOPSY (page with images 49-60)



$10.00 (LOOMIS r. 1990) novelty white flower opens flat
Plants looking real good, proud MEL.

Leave it to your #1 favorite Beau, next to bratSP of coarse... I've taken the liberty to condense your lovely photos above ...down to 4 emoji's, and U impressed, I know.

Thanks, but Eva is on a self retrieving SST tether connected to the tree. Otherwise, she'd be greeting all the Fedex, UPS & USPS delivery persons at the curb!

Her and Lanah made it round the block this morning on first light walk. Eva was feeling good today. No matter how tired or hurting she is, she always seems to have the energy to chase squirrels and guard the house. She's not relinquishing her Dobe job duties anytime soon, she told me...

Last section to do is the right tree island (just behind Eva in picture) which will also be hard, since grade here has a lot of hills and valleys around trees.

Halfway Done- Left Flowerbed and Mini Island




Low End - Notice 3-Tiers Needed Both Sections




Right Flowerbed Completed

You are getting warm when it comes to what Kenny is up to , i can hear him cussing all the way down south...sometimes when you wear so many different hats it gets tough to make them fit (not) quite right!

I've blamed everything on you from the get go.

So what's your point?

The yellow one is nice but it didn't have quite the "pop" that the other two did.

A gardener friend of my grandmothers told me when I thought helping her plant her flower beds in the late spring was a big deal, told me that if you are planting a bed of something like a lot of pansies with basic dark colors (purple, blue, bright red, orange--to make sure you have several very plain white ones in there too--she said that it makes the dark or bright colors really stand out with that kind of contrast it make everything look better. Sometimes I can hear Miss Monica whispering in my ear--"Tell her yes, you do want the plain white ones--but don't tell her our secret".

Anyway--those are pretty spectacular.

Just a little whisper in the ear Aunt B, AJ will ship you some for free!
