Tree Trimming Companies Are Great Sources for MulchTree Trimming Companies Are Great Sources for Mulch
By Skiekitty, February 26, 2015

If you need mulch and lots of it, contact a local tree trimming company. Usually they're willing to just give you the mulch for free if you can come and pick it up, or they'll charge you a nominal delivery fee if they're in the area.

Winter Doesn't End the Beauty of Your GardenWinter Doesn't End the Beauty of Your Garden
By jvdubb, February 24, 2015

Some gardeners mourn the end of their growing season when plants die back. Some gardeners work hard in the fall, cleaning out their beds and cutting everything back for tidiness. While there are reasons to cut back some plants, I've come to love my winterscape when things are left as is.

BRIGHT pink flowers. Blooms heavily, but the flowers tend to sit down in the foliage a bit so I haven't been able to get a very good picture of it, yet.

A unique iris with the black texture veins. A bit of a shy bloomer so far in my garden.

My favorite yellow SDB. Love the variation in color across the petals and the blue beards. Strong grower that always blooms heavily for me.

By KentPfeiffer on Mar 2, 2015 7:30 PM, concerning plant: Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'What About Me')

Lovely iris. When it was introduced the hybridizer, Thomas Johnson, said it "doesn’t fit well in any of the classes". However, in my garden, it's a pretty typical size for an Intermediate. About 24 inches tall and the flowers are the correct size as well.
