If you are a gardener like me and someone offers a name to one of your plants you run to the computer and google, google, google not to mention the books that go flying. Yesterday I posted and Iris bloom, name unknown with a different color than I am used to seeing on Irises. Paula from http://bucketideasforgardening.blogspot.com/ offered the name Root Beer.. I told this to my husband and said you must smell the fragrance coming from that Iris, I can't figure out what it smells like. He stuck his nose in the Iris and said, "That smells like Root Beer." In my search I came up with Gingersnap Iris with a Root Beer scent. Many thanks to Paula.
With the bud emerging this color I never dreamed it would look like
Strange how a name can make you love a flower even more.
To answer the question about "The Path Of Grace" in my full sun garden....Grace at http://www.gracepete.com/ has gravel paths in her BEAUTIFUL gardens and I have admired them for a year now. I didn't feel I could copy her without giving credit where credit is due. The definition for grace is beautiful as well.
Today I am Thankful for gardeners, for they are ever ready to share ideas, tips, information and sometimes even secrets!
