    Yes. They sit in the same spot in the same pot all winter. I'm really surprised they survive as well as they do. I guess they have a will to live. I need to take them out of that pot and divide them, but never seem to have the time to get to them. Maybe this summer after classes are done I'll get to it.

    Iris has a way of growing themselves. Great floral display they are putting on.

    Sigh... These are so pretty. There are some things I miss by living in the desert. Thanks for sharing, Bruce!
