I can't believe it, I have an open iris! Tiny little Pussy Toes opened up today. If it blooms, it's always the first to open. It's drizzling out so they're a bit wet.

Cool beans, Tom. We're still weeks away from any iris blooms. The daffodils are just starting to bloom.

I like that little iris, Tom.
Thro' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing; It finds an echo in my soul— How can I keep from singing?

Daffs are coming along next to our stone wall. Rain today which should help growth. Our tiny species Iris pumila usually bloom now, but no sign of a bud. Perhaps tomorrow after this day of rain.

I have my second one to open, and there were 7 that opened at once! This is my NOID little Plicata, as you can see in the clump shot I have a lot of it, and will need to divide it, so there should be some to share.
