Gabe, they have created some excellent dwarfs. There are several more of theirs I would love to pick up.

And so cheap. Just hope they're not as vigorous as Tom's and Neal's littles. They'll need a garden of their own soon Hilarious!

LOVE THESE AMAZING AWESOME BEARDED IRIS. HAVE BEEN GROWING THEM FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW. I GOT BLOWN AWAY YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS TAKING A STROLL AROUND OUR GROUNDS.....WELL I LOOKED OVER TO THE BEARDED IRIS AND WHAT DO YOU THINK.....ONE WAS INBLOOM, MIND YOU OUR TEMPS HAVE BEEN IN THE 25 DEG. RANGE, THIS WAS A WOW AND I CONSIDER IT AN OMEN AND QUITE BLESSED......STILL CANNOT BELIEVE IT. THOUGHT IF I BRING INSIDE IT MIGHT NOT LIVE....FROM COLD TO HEAT.....WELL I WAS WRONG....I NOW HAVE FOUR OTHER BLOSSOMS COMING ON.
THOUGHT SOMEONE MIGHT ENJOY READDING.
