First New Acquisitions of 2011

The first new irises in my garden for 2011 came from Borglum's. My annual trip there included 5 clumps. At $7.50 a clump these are a quick way to fill up the garden and share with friends. Take a plastic bag, a shovel and have at it...

Vision in Pink, Let's Boogie, Kevin's Theme. Jurassic Park and Copper Classic came home with me.
