My tiny Pussytoes opened today, same date as last year. It's such a tiny mite but sure starts a big season I'm hoping. Crossing Fingers! It's been the season opener for the last 4 years.

It's grown itself into some TB's so those large leaves belong to it's neighbor. Smiling

I want an iris that blooms really early...I keep trying to order some early bloomers, so hopefully, I snag one.

Pussytoes is really cute. Lovey dubby

Thanks it so exciting to see the season beginning. I have color on another small one, and buds on a quite a few, these are all near the house where it's warmer.

Two Thumbs up opened a few days ago with a frost damaged bloom, but today a bunch of them opened even though it froze last night these aren't too bad, kind of open standards but otherwise OK. This is a very subtle color of course, but it's really a great grower and because it blooms so early it doesn't have to compete with the brighter colored iris so it gets plenty of attention.

Little Shindig opened today too, but the bloom is pretty weather affected, I'll wait for a later bloom and hope we quit this night time freezing thing we have going on.

I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!
