This is an easy way to make your flower crosses water proof if there is the signs of rain. The pots placed on bamboo canes or steel rods can be removed a few hours after the rain has past. A clothes peg can be used to hold the pot at the right height and restrict some movement in light breezy areas of your garden.
The photo's came for some where. I forgot where I found these photos now. But I see a good idea and save it and use it to help make things easier.
I do hope that the person whom has taken these photo's in their iris patch does not mind me sharing them with you to show you how to protect your flower crosses when rain is near by or the likely hood of rain after you have taken the effort to transfer the pollen to the parent plant to make your cross ... Thank you very much...who ever you are.
