My bloom is "blowing up" all over. I have many new blooms this morning and with mid 80 degree weather for the next 3 days, the bloom may go fast. A real bummer as my local Iris Society (Susquehanna Iris Society) has a show scheduled for May 30 in York PA at the York Gallaria Mall. I may not have anything left!

So what opened up today?

Greg - So glad you finally have some blooms up your way. You are right about the 80-degree weather bringing them out. We went from winter to summer in no time at all. A few of mine got a little confused in the process so I have some with only one bud stem, short bud stems, thin budststems or none at all. Fortunately there are some first-time bloomers which is always a nice treat!

This is going to be out of order as most of my early photo files are at work and I am home. But who cares, they are all pretty pictures of our favorite flower!

Tessie The Tease

One of the reasons Griff Crump named her a "tease" was the fact that the Falls took a very long time to relax; in some case two days. I have not had much evidence of this condition, but did get a good example recently.
