Don't know what these are called - but have become a favorite in my garden


I love iris. They bring back fond memories of when I was a child. My mother had hundreds of them and they lined the driveway.

Golden Chain Tree

This is my golden chain tree. I refer to my 50th birthday as the "golden jubliee" so when staff at work gave me a gift certificate for a nursery on my birthday, I purchased this tree to commermorate (by the way that was 5 years ago). For your information, it is my rule that when you turn 50 the golden jubilee is not just one day - it lasts from then on out.
