I have to agree with you, and now this deep wine red has started to show-off...

Hi Brian,

I don't recall seeing you on here before, so welcome. And if you have been on here, well, welcome, anyway!

Lovely irises, especially the siberian, my favorites!

Brand new flowers on brand new plant & it is rainning. Hubby went out & checked for me & he reported that the 3 stalks on the SDB each had 2 more buds to come.

This summer we will have a sale on Cubits for the NW growers. Dee runs it, and we get some beautiful irises from there for a good price, if you are interested.

Hopefully there should be some trades, and maybe some freebies for postage on either here or Cubits too. About another month or so.
