Thanks to many of you here and elsewhere, I have so many lovely irises. Thank You! , all! Whether you sent one or 20, you've been more than generous. So let's start the show!

First up was Country Dance on April 18th. Such a cute little flower and the beard caught my eye.

A couple of days ago, I. germanica opened. This increases rapidly. Anyone travelling in the neighborhood is welcome to come get some. Whistling

Iris are starting in Utah. We had a Utah Iris Society meeting last night with an informal show. I didn't count but think there were about 60 specimens, mostly SDBs and IBs. Great to see the iris and especially the people.

Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

At the meeting last night, I took second place with Kaching which was given to me by Paul2032. Thanks Paul. At that Mini show we get cash for top three, so I have $10 toward my next order.



Celia, Hope you'll have a good bloom year. Think it is supposed to snow on Thursday and/or Friday..
