We are having cold winter weather here though not as bad as the reports from back East sound. I've been enjoying Brad's 2013 pictures so I starting looking at mine and it brightened up my day. Hopefully it will ease the winter blahs for some of you and help us to anticipate bloom season.

Beautiful pictures of beautiful irises! Florentine Silk does not thrive here, it plods along much like me, but the end result is worth the space.

For clarity and depth of the color pink from the blue side Hollywood Star and Star Appeal are both worthy of space in my garden. HS wins when you consider form.

Both beautiful! I have purchased a pink iris nearly every year trying to find a really pink one resulting in an area of parchments, corals, and lavenders. Both of the pinks you posted look great!

Thanks everyone.......I'm so longing for winter to move along quickly so I can get out into the garden. It is cold here but not as bad as some of you are having.

I agree Paul. Tooooooo cold here but nothing compared with what others are enduring. I love Blue Trill. I had it on my wish list last spring and my local source was out and I forgot to put it on the new wish list. I'm Dreaming is new to me. It is beautiful! Thanks for raising our spirits!

Blue Trill came as a bonus from Mid-America and I'm Dreaming is a Blyth iris that Keith Keppel sent as a bonus.
