Hello everyone and happy August!
I made a new Iris bed this weekend. Most of my Irises didn't flower this spring and I was thinking they were in too much shade. But as I dug them up to move, I was dismayed to find that the problem is Iris Borers.
Up until last year, I've only had the antique Honorabile (darker yellow), and an antique lighter yellow, with no problems at all. The year before last I was given an order of Irises (from a reputable company) for my birthday. So it's these newer ones that got eaten up. I was able to salvage 5 or 6 rhizomes and hopefully they'll be okay in the spring.
Now onto better things! Last week Mister brought home this green corner shelf from a yard sale ($1). I finally decided that it would look best in the downstairs bathroom. I ended up redecorating the whole room!
As you can see, I moved some of my white milk glass items in here.
And, here is my August Tag-Along ~ a relaxing month before back to school. The middle image/saying came from a greeting card. The colored shell pieces are vintage mother-of-pearl craft items. The kid leaning on the fence is a girl - see her long pigtail?
I'll see you on Rednesday!
