Blooming today, yesterday, and the day before:

ADOREE (Last picture is a two-day old flower after a rain)


NEIL'S CHOICE - My first iris this year that I'm seeing bloom in my garden for the first time. And this has become my FAVORITE purple iris! Absolutely beautiful! It started out quite dark but by the second day had become lighter. The last picture is the two-day old flower.


BOLD VISION


APPLAUSE LINE

EXTROVERT and NEBRASKA BIG RED


FOR LOVERS ONLY and AGAIN AND AGAIN


GRACIOUS CURVES


NANCY'S LACE and LUNAR WHITEWASH


The Arilbreds always bloom early, and here are the three that are open today:
EXOTIC TREASURE


OCTAVE


And the ever-photogenic EYE TO EYE

I just love those aril spots!

And a few medians:
BROWN LASSO, HIS HONOR, and BOLD STATEMENT


And I'll finish with my only NOID, a beautiful white iris that I absolutely cannot part with. I call it "Christmas."

Well, it's very difficult, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be Bold Vision. They are all so beautiful, thanks for posting them.

I think Keith Keppel's SUMMER SHADOW is a BOLD VISION seedling, and I can't wait to see it. BOLD VISION is quite short, but it's one of my best bloomers. And Keith's SUMMER SHADOW is taller -- and I have a stalk! YEA!!!
