Well, all you southern warm climate people that I have been envious of, I now have some open iris, Little ones though they may be, they are open on April 3, about a month early. I have
Pussy Toes, and I think Stitch Witch, not sure, as I have two that are alike, only one is a more blue color then this one, but I know one is stitch witch and I don't know the name of the other one. (Don't know which is witch!)

Awww, sweet!

Nothing here yet. And you're colder than me. I really think it's because we lose our snow so late.

Beautiful! I have never had these small ones until I planted a couple last fall - and now I have just fallen in love with them. Can't wait for mine to grow larger clumps! Devoted is my favorite of the ones you posted, but they are all just cute! ~Jan

My favorite is DEVOTED. I had it for three years or so and it never bloomed in my climate, so I gave it to someone who gets colder winters -- can't remember who at the moment, but whoever it is should be enjoying it now!

I just love those little SDB's -- what a show they put on!
