Previously I lived in Sweden for nearly 20 years and my quest there was to hybridize auriculas to produce ever better plants suitable for the harsh Swedish climate. Whilst living there I also created and run Sweden’s Auricula Club. I've now returned to England to continue growing auriculas together with my daughter-in-law, Iris. Iris is also an enthusiastic & skilful Iris grower; many of her wonderful Irises can be seen on this blog.

Nearly killed a friend!!!!!!!
Friend not foe.
Whilst wandering in the garden I noticed a red beetle
on one of my lilies;
AH a lily bug. I leapt into action to try and grab the little beast and squash
it, at the last moment I realised it was a friend and not a foe. I must have my
eyes checked!!!! /Ray
