I would love to see some beautiful iris blooms from my other fellow Texans as well as ones from other different states. Here in N. Central Texas I am just starting to see some blooms on my TB's and lots of bloom stalks. Let's get this party started! Hurray!

Beautiful!!!

My irises do not start until late April, early May and run through around May 25th, after my birthday. Those are the noids though. I have several new varieties coming up from 2018 plantings that look to be earlier than my season starter - good ole' Iris Pallida (clone).

I'm seeing a few stalks. Several SDBs have stalks and will bloom fairly soon, and even my only MTB has a bloomstalk! Hurray!
What a beautiful sunset!

Your garden is gorgeous Stephanie Lovey dubby
Do you use mulch in your beds or is that just the colour of your soil?

I use a mixture of organic garden soil, construction sand, & a raised bed soil.

Is that a golf course, or a park across the pond?
