I haven't posted for a while, yet I have more blooms to share. A bit of a misunderstanding has come and gone...I just need to get over it.

It really depends on the weather. Last year it was cool without a heat spell until the end. This week has been in the high 80's so many are blooming quickly instead of slow steady development. On Saturday it is supposed to cool down to a high of 59°, with a low of 49°....strange....many that bloomed in June are blooming now. One peony opened up and almost shattered. It has been too hot for perfect blooms of any of the flowers. The roses are also shattering.

Last year High Octane, Don't Stop Believing, Ink Patterns, Murano Amber, Dipped in Dots, Queen of Angels and Purple People Eater were still blooming June 21. With the heat wave we had, it has sped up the blooming so I cannot predict what will happen, just like I cannot predict the weather. If it stays cool, after the cool down, for a couple of weeks...there could be some surprises...or rot! Anybody's guess! Sticking tongue out or Hurray! Shrug! Smiling

I love how when the sun hits Fancy Ideas just right, it glows. Lovey dubby

Fancy Ideas (Warning: full view might make this iris jump onto your shopping list)


Breakers went crazy this year.

For the third year in a row, Beyond Curiosity decides to bloom down low. I swear it was named for doing this, since I've never been able to see a bloom. Darn iris humor... Glare

Ev: I love your Alessandras Gift. It's a nice green. Mine bloomed this year too. It is one of my Favorites. I also love Paris Memory. It's the 1st I have seen it.
