I didn't know you grew Reddy Set, thank you. Ours are just starting to bud & we are only 45 minutes north but slower as being closer near the ocean. No SDBs showing color as yet & I am not a photographer.

Mine are just starting, mostly pregnant fans, but Reddy Set really wanted to bloom and I'm happy it did! It brought me lots of joy today Lovey dubby

Here are a couple more pictures from my camera.



These were in the morning when it had just opened and it was overcast.


This one was taken during the afternoon in full sun. The veining in the falls is spectacular!

No new blooms today, but I'm seeing so many stalks popping up on my little guys, some up to 6 per plant Smiling
I took on the major task of planting my Tempo Two irises in the garden from their pots and only got through 12/50 since I had to prepare the bed before beginning planting. The roots look awesome and are starting to pop out the bottom of the pots Hurray!

Hopefully more blooms tomorrow or Monday Crossing Fingers!

Your picture looks nice!

My super cute little blue noid just opened! I think it's a Miniature Dwarf and strongly resembles Marmot, a MDB hybridized by Simonson in 1966. Winterberry carries it so I may buy one as a test plant this year. Either way I love it! It isn't relaxed yet, but I was too excited and took pics right away.

Here's my favorite light blue - Cool Charlotte. Using Kent's photo because my camera makes it more lavender than blue. Sad

That's a really nice one Jan, color and the ruffles.

There are a bunch of blues that I'm looking forward to this year and they range from light to dark. I find that's it hard to capture the really light blue ones in pictures.

Blue is such a pretty middle name Bonnie Lovey dubby
