This beautiful iris - 'Edith Wolford' - is a gift from Randy, Jamie and their friend Carol who visited us a few weeks ago.
Kaye, an Internet acquaintance from Arkansas, was passing through the area on the way to Florida, and made a detour to visit our garden. I felt so honored. She and her husband have a beautiful rose garden and they brought me three China roses that I didn't have. This one is "Archduke Charles" -
Jennifer, rose rustler extraordinaire, has been rooting cuttings from the roses in our garden. Last fall she gave us this beautiful variegated sedum which has been getting lots of attention from garden visitors. Isn't it stunning?
There are many more plants in the garden that have come from friends and visitors. I will have to do a "Part 2" when those start to bloom.
