The weather has been crazy here! Sticking tongue out Cold - cool- 'warm-ish' - Below Freezing - cold
I do have other irises poking their leaves out as well... I keep telling them to go back to sleep because it is NOT Spring yet, LOL!

The iris sprout picture I posted above is Alta California, which we got from HIPS.
I do have irises from you that are peeking out as well..! Lovey dubby
It snowed a bit last night, but I will take a couple pics of 'your' irises that are coming up. I know for sure that Silverado is peeking up, as well as Gay Parasol. Big Grin

Hugs- Christy

PS- the current outdoor temp is a mere 20 degrees!
My irises don't seem to mind the cold at all...

By the way. I just went to the database to see "Alta California" and there was no picture of it. Can you post a picture if it blooms this year?

Greg- This is the HIPS picture of Alta California.
If mine bloom this year, I will most definitely get some nice big, detailed pictures. Big Grin

Mary Ann- It is too cold for me to drag my rear end out with the camera... Thumbs down
It snowed a bit yesterday, and is lightly snowing again today. When the snow either blows away, or melts I will take pictures for you.

Hugs- Christy

PS- Today is a great day to bake a cake. Rolling my eyes.

That one's on my wish list, Christy! It's about in the middle of my list, so, hopefully, some time around 2018, I should be worked down to it Rolling on the floor laughing ! Are you getting of the Cayeux iris from HIPS? It's a nice opportunity to add some rare oldies...Arlyn
