I'm running late this morning, so I'll finish the irises tomorrow. Just an observation today on ticks. I hate ticks as much as the rest of you probably do and this year seems to be a banner year for them. I find 3 or 4 of them walking on me almost every day. Luckily none attached. Last night when I was folding laundry I picked up a white shirt and there was a tick walking on it. This little guy had made it through the wash and the dryer and was going on like nothing had happened. How many other things can you think of that could do that ?????
