THE Diary OF A PLAIN DIRT GARDENER

Oct. I Up this chilly morn and in to town to get the mail early, where I found a box with the new iris I had ordered the other day-- and that should have been bought in June or July, when I planted that other new one, except I didn't have the money at the right time.
