Today I am thankful for the ability to dig in my yard and spend time working to beautify our landscaping. I spent several hours on Sunday digging up and separating iris rhizomes that had become crowded in one of our flower beds. I dug up and separated at least 100 rhizomes and look forward to next spring when I will have a lot more flowers sprouting up since they now have more space to grow. 🙂 Gardening and taking care of my plants is one of my favorite activities and I am blessed to have a yard that allows me to get a little dirty. It is a very rewarding feeling to work hard, get a little dirty, all in an effort to make our home/yard more beautiful. I also love to basically get free plants out of my hard work since the irises have reproduced so much!
