I though I'd start a new thread for my blooming beauties. I am in final countdown mode to a beautiful bloom season. My standards are just getting ready to bloom.

I have had these unknown beauties bloom first. I divided these so they are not as showy as they were a few years back in this pic.

I love large rocks in the landscape. Please post a landscape photo when your irises are in full bloom.

This just opened this morning. I had this one marked as Alamo Joe, but I don't think it is.

You are right, Lindsay, definitely not Alamo Joe. Do you know how old it is? It looks a bit like Overcast but does not have the ruffles Overcast does.

I think I got it from Tom. He'll probably know. It's unusual looking, but pretty. Before the bloom opens, it looks like pea green petals wrapped inside.
