A windfall of Iris and another stone wall

When my friend Angie offered me anything I wanted from the garden on the property she's selling, I never dreamed I'd be digging up over 700 Bearded Iris rhizomes...really good ones!
We've been busy burying these EVERYWHERE!


and here,

and all around Pippity Squeekys cunning stone cottage.
My knees hurt...
but Fuzzyfoot gardeners don't have knees, they can dig all day.

We  still have to plant this load, but I'm running out of steam...
Did I mention.... that my friend also offered me all the stones on the property?

Enough to build this 23 foot stone wall!
Ouch, my back hurts.
Fuzzyfoot gardeners don't lift heavy stones.

And roosters don't either.
They do, however, use stonewalls as an attractive backdrop to strut their stuff.
I can hardly wait till next May when all those glorious Iris are blooming against that wall.
Thankyou Angie,
And thankyou Fuzzyfoot gardeners!
