Thank you. The garden is chock a block. I actually watered around some of them carefully today as the soil has fissures developing, it is so dry, no proper rain here for weeks.

Its the same here Sue , I had an email from a friend today he has an allotment he said the ground is so hard he's unable to dig it ... We have a 1000 Ltr water tank I'm hoping it will last until the next rain fall ...

Thats a beauty they have put warning out about conserving water with the dry weather the rivers are are very low even here where I live a warning has gone out to be careful with water. I just hope its not caused by controlling the weather as certain countries do against their enemies.

Thanks, I think the back drop of the bungalow wall helped.
Some Iris petals have a velvety texture, and some have like a sprinkling of stardust, (I forget the proper term)

I was gonna ask you about this one.
I'm glad to see it flowering ♥

Yes Tm, it has just opened, first time, love the depth of the blackness. Thank you so much. Watch this space for the frilly white. (Actually the unopened flower looks cream)
