The Pseudo-Steves Do Their Thing in 2019

Regular readers will know the back story to the pseudo-Steves, who are the Siberian Irises in our garden. These photos were taken on the last day of May. They are flowering well this year, but the flowers seem small, and I think they are not going to have a long season. I blame the heat and the dry. Last year they were stupendous.

    1. We've had both. Today is cold and might rain, but last weekend the temperature was in the 30sC. Not enough rain. Yesterday we were walloped by Miguel with trees down all over the place and lots of tree debris in the streets today.
