Blatant.....this one seems to always have *something* wrong with the bloom....it's really pretty when everything is "correct", though !

I agree, but that is a tad bit too much honey! Hilarious!

I had a great one to show y'all -- but I forgot to take a pic the day I saw it, and when I went out the next morning, it was all folded up. Sad

The Iris was Tequila Sunrise
Thumb of 2015-05-25/Muddymitts/41fd15 and the fall petal was split right down the middle -- lavender on one half, yellow on the other.

It was pretty cool-looking!!

It really was -- and I'm so irritated with myself that I didn't go grab the camera right then and there. Angry
