Very beautiful flowers Roland!
I have a very large garden but no green fingers at all.

I took this picture 3 weeks ago (April 27)

Can you identify the plant? (hint: the answer's in the stem)

Custard? Is that how you consumed it? Well I guess it's no odder than my use of the 'weed'. I eat rhubarb cake - tastes like carrot cake (or more to the point, spice cake).

Anyways, here's yesterday's photo of the same bunch. Yup! they grow as fast as weeds.


Guess it's time to start harvesting em

Haven't you ever had Rhubarb and Custard pie? When I was a kid we'd (my parents) would make custard with a Rhubarb topping. Just dice up the Rhubarb and cook, or boil with enough sugar to taste and use as a topping. LOL! I'm going to have to make some soon!

My favourite  Rhubarb recipe is Rhubarb crumble with custard.  I used to know a lady who made the most delicious one, I have never made one myself though.

Kelda, I have posted the receipe for rhubarb cake before. I'll try & dig it up again.

Here's a second height of iris - the medium ones. I only have this variety of the medium iris (purple, right?) but I've got em growing in at least four areas. Lady came in the yard today in response to the big plants 4 sale sign on my lawn and those were the plants that she's interested in. I do have about ten pots of these in the driveway. She said she'd be back tomorrow - on day 1 of the sale.

These are the ones she saw, but you're getting a better view (looking north instead of east).


they look much darker without the lense
