This is Edith Wolford, hybridized in 1986. Not much scent but I like the color combination and flower form.

This is a modern, small, early variety. You almost need to be on hands and knees to smell it, but there is a very sweet fragrance.

This is a view of the bearded iris beds. Most are historic varieties, from 1500 to mid 20th century. A handful are modern.

Some of the bearded irises I grow. Last year I over-coddled them and as a result, I think, lost some due to disease. Even so, irises are tough and there was some nice bloom.

This is an old historic variety, Loreley, from 1909. Small, fragrant.

I've never eaten a morel mushroom.

I did some more hauling with the Gorilla cart today.  It did a reasonable job, but it did tip over once because of only a slight bump, and it hit the backs of my shoes once when I was pulling a heavy load with both hands in soft dirt.

Spud and Barbara: I reckon I'll have to make my own decision(s) about what type of "hauler" I want and need. But I value your opinions. I also have arthritis in my hands, esp. thumb joints.

With the over 3" of rain we've had in the past few days, plus the very cool weather (high of 45 today!), my garden is in the dormant mood. Worse, I'm stuck indoors. I read the article on "rain odors". Interesting.

I always thought I could smell mushrooms (morels), too. I looked the other day, but only found some "shelf" ones. They were delicious!

Just read an interesting article about what you smell before and after a rain storm.  I guessed correctly what it was and was not before, but never heard of what it was after:

Planted the last of my peas and beets that I had growing in containers.  Yea!  

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 14, 2014 at 8:55am

Another positive about the Gorilla Cart is that it's narrow, and so will fit in small spaces.  Hard to maneuver in small spaces when backing up, but that will improve with practice.
