Hey Sheriff!
I think I have figured out this picture thing.

I wish I could do roses Lee, but they don't like my place. Never had a rosebush survive. And I don't think gardenias grow in these parts.

Iris must be one of the most adapable plants.  They're regarded as virtually dought proof here and thrive in the hot arid inland.  Yet they seem just as at home in the Canadian snow.
