Thanks everybody -- I'm sure enjoying them!!

BTW -- I had to dig up a small clump of my Ancient One -- and wonder if anyone would like to have the rhizomes. Think I could pack them in a small flat-rate box for about six dollars...........

It's about to explode here, I think, Tom!!!

I got a few more photos this evening. Unfortunately, it rained all day long before clearing this evening, so the flowers are looking water-logged. But I wasn't sure that I would get another shot with some of them. Shrug!

This is Neytiri (may be spelled Neyetiri):

It is, indeed. And is Neytiri the correct spelling Les?

Not sure. It may just be Netiri without the "y".

I am enjoying all the photos wearing my smug grin. Nothing in bloom here as yet, at least not irises.

Great little guys Mary Ann. I had rain off and on all day too. Just enough to weigh down large blooms on the newly opened TB's and to make some of the new little guys look ragged. Some are first year plants and I may not get another bloom on them this year.
Rise and shine and give God the glory!!

But nothing compares to the clump made by Pippi Longstocking -- this is a two-year clump!!!

This is Pippi last year, it's first year here:

That's it for today. Think there is one more out there that hasn't opened up yet!
