Unlike this iris, which paid the price by blooming in December! I don't know if it was damaged by frost before the rain came a week ago, because we left Austin at the beginning of December, only returning 3 days ago. I seem to chose the worst time to abandon my garden. This time it wasn't the icy spell of last year but a lack of rain.
It's great to be home and I can't wait to get 'stuck in' again. There's plenty to keep me busy and burn off those extra Christmas pounds.
Happy New Year and may your garden bring you much happiness in 2011.
