January is the perfect time to cuddle up to a warm catalog or computer and contemplate Spring. There are a few iris I got from some of you and some that were ordered from the internet that I am very much looking forward to seeing. What one or 50 are you looking forward to seeing that hasn't bloomed for you yet?

Cant' wait to see them all but these are the most anticipated!

Wow, this could take me all day to respond to, so I'll just put one from each hybridizer for now and see how far I get! Great idea for a thread!

Oh my, that's a big list for me! I've added quite a few the last 2 years, but I'll focus on those that are waiting till year 2 to give me first blooms. The pink bed should be colorful this spring!
