Planting Iris

 Earlier in the spring, I shared my progress as I built up retaining walls and added terraces.  Those areas are now being planted with iris rhizomes.  I have ordered from a number of big national iris growers and have gotten many from my neighbor and the local iris club.

 We are still hauling rocks from the mountains every chance we get - using them for dry stacking for the terraces.  I have put down the drip irrigation lines and plant the iris rhizomes along them. 
I look forward to some colorful iris blossoms next spring!
