(Shooter actually pulled up part of this bulb, held it up and says, "Honey, what the heck is this thing?!?!?" I gasped and said, "Put down the iris bulb honey...I don't want to have to hurt you, but I will.")
We, as in Shooter, went to Lowe's and bought eight 40lb bags of top soil to fill in the bed. It was such a mess. We realized that one of our downspouts was eroding most of the dirt from the bed. So, we have an extender for the spout and a newly filled bed. Hopefully the bulbs are all nice and happy and cozy in their new bed of fresh dirt. I can't wait for them to bloom so that I can get good pics of them this year.
I was honestly very afraid at the thought of splitting up these happy families...but because they were so close to the surface, I'm pretty sure they'll not be as hard as I thought to get up/out/split as I had feared.
I'm so glad that Spring is here...kinda...well I say it's here...so it is. :-)
