Iris bulbs

This picture of absolutely gorgeous irises is from my flower bed this last Spring. They bloomed for about 2 weeks in early June. I acquired them through a bag of a couple dozen left at Dad's 3 or 4 years ago by Bobi. I planted them on a very cold November night that was threatening snow. The irises bloomed the next Spring.
Why am I blogging this?
Today I dug up and split 1/2 the bed. It filled a child's plastic sled. I will finish the rest of the bed, replant 2-3 dozen and then share the rest, until they are gone, with whoever wants a low maintenance beautiful Spring flower. Contact me and we can work out some way to get them to you before the first snow.
