  8. Oh, Col

    thank you for sharing this photo.

  9. @Deb Nance -- Your porch looks like a lovely spot!

    Ms. Ukraine, Stevebethere, Carol and Jo -- Thank you. The orange azalea makes the purple iris pop.

    Brooke -- I planted these the year we moved back north (so 6 years ago). They seem to be thriving.

    Beth -- Thanks. My husband laughs because I have to take twenty photos to get one good one.

    Carol -- I love iris. They didn't grow well at our home in Florida, so I put in a bed of them when I got to PA.
