Iris, Foxgloves and a Few More
The first to open were purple with a yellow streak on the beard… But these have since opened and oh my, they’re stunning!
Dad dug most of them out the next year. His idea of planting is:
He pulls everything up, bulbs, perennials, the lot. Apparently they’re ‘woody’. I get angry on mum’s behalf, but she is unable to weed herself as she has cellulitis infection in her legs.
This year he dug up her Alliums, 3 survived when they should have had around 10. So I showed him my borders and what their garden ‘could’ve’ looked like if he’d left his in.
I consider doing their gardening/weeding for them. But I know I’d see the carnage first hand and it would upset me even more. He’d still rip out all the plants even if I kept it weed-free for them.
