A Gator Garden

____________________

In honor of the spring Blue/Orange Gator game that was held last weekend, TheGreatWall has taken on a Florida Gator appearance.

It would seem to be appropriate,as a large amount of our money went there……

Wow, you have a lot going on in your garden. Interesting way to present them. I just bought one of those Regina irises at HD myself, but I'm still waiting for a bloom. Yours is quite beautiful.

Chris: I love all the blue collection! Too bad I don't see that Blue Iris in HD here. Maybe that is only available for zone 10?? That succulent flower is very cute and unique!

I meant "Maybe that is only available for zone 9?? " :) I am in zone 10.

Hello. Enjoyed looking at your blog, even though I am an LSU Tiger fan. (Go SEC!). As a Louisiana iris enthusiast, I am amazed that Home Depot sells Giant Blue Iris (aka Iris giganticaerulea). The Home Depot's in New Orleans are more likely to sell bearded irises, which don't do well here at all. HD needs to to better by us Zone 9-10 gardeners.
