I remember some years when I didn't have any thing in bloom for the early show in early-mid May..........

Going to grab me a bite to eat and then get all I need to spend the majority of the day working in the yard! Should be beautiful today. Will have pics later of a couple more new blooms. Everyone have a wonderful day!

The 2nd photo of Raspberry Ice is more like ours, the first shot of it was too bright. Enjoying all the pictures & warmer weather should finish melting our snow.

I like Devoted, one of my favorite SDBs. Mine bloomed this year sparingly and small because it was crowed. Plum Twist is another goodie and is often one of the very first to bloom.

My favorite hasn't bloomed yet. A nice guy in our iris club gave me several rizhomes 'cause he knew it was my favorite. I thank him (Paul) for 'My Cher'...can't wait till it blooms...should be soon.

Devoted is a nice one, I had it, lost it, and got it again. I'm hoping it blooms this spring, it's looking good so far.
