Hi everyone! Life has been so busy, but I wanted to share my iris season with you. As you all know I made a big move last summer and spent many months digging and planting, to the point of exhaustion. I had very low expectations for what would bloom this year, but I was pleasantly surprised to have a really successful 6 weeks of blooms. I'll try to post them roughly in order of bloom, starting with the dwarf irises. It will probably take me a couple weeks to post everything so bear with me Smiling

Thank You! Slowcala and Welcome! I own a dairy goat farm in Vermont Smiling

Thank You! Charlotte, I've been around, just admiring everyone else's pictures over the past few months.

Thank You! Bonnie! I think I had more dwarf blooms this year than talls and intermediates.

Thank You! so much for the warm welcome back! I've missed interacting with you all and have so enjoyed everyone's blooms. They brought me joy during times of stress.

Daphne, we just got our milk liscence and will be making cheese to sell next week! It has been such a long process and had to go through some rigorous inspections to get here.

In the midst of the chaos I also just got this lovely new doeling from a dairy farm up in Maine to add strength to our milk genetics. She is the sweetest thing!
