Margaret has decided to move the white iris from their bed behind the house to the side front yard. They have multiplied so much that they are bound and are not doing well. Margaret says November is the time to pull and separate the bulbs for replanting. I would love to use the raised area for herbs and zinnias next summer. I feel I could handle that much.
Margaret doesn't like to work on Sunday, but she has to work when the weather allows. I helped a bit ( about 45 minutes to her several hours ) this afternoon and we did get a lot of weeds pulled and some nice size piles of the debis stacked for moving to the burn pile.
Margaret wasn't able to work in her herb garden this year because of the heat and her health. I am amazed at how much junk grew over everything while she was unable to tend it. The little oasis looks simply awful and beyond repair. I'm sure it will get put right if Margaret can work as she wants to through Autumn and early winter.
