Nemo! Rolling on the floor laughing That's funny!

Arlyn, hubby popped off a Batik that did that yesterday. I told him we were taking pics of them. He looked confused and said "Why?" I showed him this thread and he said he would take a pic next time. Guess he gets it now. Hilarious!

The very last germanica. Everything is perfect except an extra standard pretending it's a fall.

A couple of cold nights have had an affect ....

Yaquina Blue with only two falls - and very short.

Purple Streaker with four falls and a double beard.

Thumb of 2015-05-21/Snork/2af817


And Drinks at Sunset apparently had a few too many... Three and a half falls - and broken color stripes.

Drinks must have been at a "mixer." (Groan...... bad punning zone).

There are some Space Agers that always have just the "Hairy" flounces. I can't rememember though how they are usually described.

Ive been trying to ID this NOID and the closest choice was and Arilbred 'Foursome' until I found your thread. I think it must belong here? Yes? I quess I'll try again next year when it will maybe look proper. It is very late too. Our Iris have come and gone.

Leslieray -- that bloom sure looks like RoundUp damage. Did you spray near this (these) Iris?

Hilarious! Hilarious! I was thinking that your Batik made a very nice flattie!


Jane - that is unusual for so many to all be missing the same part! Something strange is going on there indeed!
