I made mint tea from the apple mint by the path to the house. I ordered some iris rhizomes from the Historic Iris association sale. Some of the rhizomes were of cultivars introduced in this century, so not really that old. I mostly ordered older ones, some from the 1800s. I don't seem to be a fan of the sort that has very ruffled petals. I like certain colors, though. I got pink and peach-colored cultivars, and blue, yellow and purple ones.
After I finished making the tea, I took a nap for a while. When I got up, Mom and I watched the movie "Apollo 13." We knew when we started the movie that the astronauts would make it back home, but Mom still got teary near the end.
