Per my mom's advice, I always travel with a shallow bucket and trowel in the trunk of my car. Out I got, dug up part of it took it home and planted it at our home. She's still beautiful all these years later!Disclaimer: I never dig anywhere other than roadsides and like places. (i.e., no personal yards, cemeteries, etc. :-)!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyCarver10:06 AMWhat a beautiful variety of irises Sandy.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyMaggie May10:43 AMAaaaaaah!
