Gorgeous Iris and photo:-) mine aren't in flower yet either:-(, mine are yellow and white, love these as you don't have to remember to keep divided like the bearded.

I find them much easier to grow, although I bought some of the dwarf bearded 'cherry garden' yesterday as I just love the colour and used to have them in my old garden. This garden is slowly becoming just like the old one!

Lots of my stuff is really from my old garden. I dug and divided and needed to hire a small van when we moved !!

They are putting on a lovely display, Karen.

Yes, me too Ann!

We did the same, thought we might need two vans!! lol have just put a pic on of ours, it is such a colourful iris.

We actually did our entire move ourselves with a big hired van. I spent the next 3 months in pain with sciatica! We did three runs, one of which was the plant run....but can you believe it - someone pinched half of my plants in between runs!!

We did too Karensusan a van and a couple of friends, we rented while ours was being built had pots of plants sunk in the ground all over the rented house garden looked bare when we left.
Cheeky pinching your plants, we had a laurel hedge pinched been planted two years, then suddenly disappeared, the things people steal.

Unbelievable, never heard of people pinching plants before, whatever next!! we even bought 2 stone sinks with us, the removal men could not wait for us to empty them so picked them up with all the plants and put them on the van, we had more plants than furniture lol

My ex thought I was mad, I'm glad to see it's not only me!! It would have cost a small fortune to fill my garden from scratch. I had an arrangement with the man who owned the new house, he let me start bringing van loads the week before we moved :-))

Good for you! I can't imagine leaving here and not taking half the garden with me!

8 Jun, 2010

 

DD, I had a feeling that i knew who was responsible....but what can you do without any proof? It really made me mad mad mad!!

The old garden looked good too, I replanted a piece of everything I took apart from a few shrubs and roses. The lady who bought the house admitted she was buying my garden not the cottage :-)))

Ha! We were a bit like that too. Sold our old house to a couple of design academics who loved the garden! I left it intact like you, except for a few clems and the Cornus Kousa which promptly died on me....I've felt bad about that ever since!!

The old plants are my treasured babies :-)))

I did just the same Karensusan, took my lovely acer which didn't survive here far too windy, should have left it where it was:-(
Same here Annella lots of my perennials had been given to me by my Dad who's now dead, loved his garden, which I think has been flattened by new owners, but at least loads of his plants survive here :-)

8 Jun, 2010

 

Oh no. I'd hate anyone to flatten my garden or my Mum's garden. That would be really hard to take! Still, you have to let go don't you.....:(( People are very different.

Yay! I just have these so far, but there are some other ones budding up too!
