It really is Robin. I don't even care if it has a name, I just love the color and really cute small size. It's bigger than a quarter, but not by much.

I agree me 7, blue is such a pretty color in the garden. 'Blueberry tart' is sweet too!

Intense thunderstorm last night brought heavy rain, but my little flowers don't seem to be affected. A second little blue noid opened, and Muppet made an appearance this morning. It's very overcast today.

I don't think that pictures fully capture Muppet's interesting colors. You have to closely observe the subtle blending to really appreciate this flower. It is a blue and olive combo. The picture makes it look a bit more intensely blue in the standards than it should. Maybe in the sun I could capture it a bit better. Either way, I like it Smiling

Andrea, I'm hoping that I won't have to wait until next year to see them bloom since they changed seasons briefly Crossing Fingers!

Thank you Pam! I can't wait either! I have some pretty awesome TBs that I'm excited to see.

The sun came out! Here's one more Muppet picture.


A couple new Blueberry Tart blooms as the first one is on it's way out.


Sorry if I post excessive pictures throughout this thread. I'm like a new mom with her newborn babies *Blush*

Your babies are beautiful Liz. I love seeing multiple photos of the same iris and seeing them in different light and different angles. Muppet and Bonnie Babe are great names. I wonder if Bonnie has that one?

No. I can't find it anywhere and I have been looking. Last year it came up on a HIPS auction but was gone before I got a bid in. Sad

Thanks, Lilli. I will keep looking for it and someday I will find it. Smiling

Now someone needs to hybridize a little iris and name it Bonnie Blue. LOL
