Injured, Oh No. D/4JF

Wednesday, April 24, 2013



Today my husband and I went on a drive when we stumbled upon a home hobbyist iris grower.



WOW, she had a spectacular showing of over 60 varieties. They were so beautiful !!! The lady handed my husband a list of the varieties she grew and a pencil. I had hoped we could pick up a few plants. I followed behind my husband. He had the clipboard in hand. LOL, I never would of expected to see him checking off plants he liked. Before I knew he had picked out 18 plants !!!



Wow. He was doing the picking. He said he had $40.00 in his pocket and he ended up spending it all on iris plants. He couldn't stop picking them out. I am happy to have some new additions to the garden. Some of the clumps she dug up had 6 shoots coming of of it that I was able to break apart into new starts. By next year those will be blooming.



Unfortunately I was not able to plant them all. I tripped over some stakes, flew forward with a loud scream into a rosebush.



My cat who was out in the front yard on a bay window (she sits on top of it) flew off of it, climbed down the fence to see if her mom was OK. She is my furry angel. Fortunately I was able to stop myself with my hands so I didn't end up on the ground. I got scrapped up on my hands. My wrist is sore. My knee made a weird sensation inside. I have it elevated but it's swelling a bit. Exercising is out of the plan now. Hopefully it isn't anything serious.

I still have some iris let to plant. Maybe tomorrow if I feel up to it I can get out and plant them.

    I love Irises, but don't have enough sun in my yard to grow them.

Hope you feel better soon.

    Get that knee looked at if you have the slightest doubt about it. Joints can be tricky and you want to head off any long term problems. Hope all gets better soon.

    emoticon I have quite a few Iris in my yard that came from my parents' yard where there were hundreds of plants -- started when Dad got 6 bulbs as a free gift when ordering seeds for his garden around 1940. Falling without the ability to stop the fall is such a helpless feeling -- my friends and I joke about our doing senior acrobatics. Hope the injuries heal quickly.

I wish I knew an iris farmer...sounds like fun! And, how cool is that - your husband planning and buying - nice guy. Your cat sounds like a gem, too. Surrounded by flowers and love - you should be feeling better in no time:) emoticon
