I know I am a bit behind in my reading and posting. My apologies. These first few pictures are from my Apple iPhone rather than my "regular" Cannon SLR. There may not be much of a difference, but wanted to point it out anyway.

My season has been just as whacky as to timing as the rest of you all have experienced.

The first to bloom was "Muggles" (SDB) followed closely by "Encore Lady" (TB-RE). Encore Lady is in the "micro-clim" area which makes a huge difference (this is the area that I am losing due to "Iris Intervention") D'Oh!

This is a slow grower, but worth it! Voldy was making it a rainy and cloudy day, so the presentation is a bit off. "He" shines in the sunshine Sticking tongue out Blinking

This passed by without even an opportunity to take a picture. I am hoping more will come. Sad

Tessie The Tease

This year, she finally lived up to her name. She did what Griffin Crump said she would; she teased her opening. It was like she was stuck in the 3/4 open phase. All three clumps did the same thing. She had not done this in the past; and I have had her for some time. Griff thought it strange that this teasing was not happening in my yard over the last few years. I think he will be happy that she did this year!

That is it for today. I will hopefully have my "real" camera photos in the computer so I can upload them tomorrow. I know there are at least 100 pictures; if not more.

The last two days has seen an explosion of blooms (I tagged over 100 bloom stalks)!

I also need to get out of my building soon as King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden will be arriving soon and I don't want to be "stuck" in the building/my office for a long time. So, until tomorrow Sticking tongue out

Nice to learn why Tessie was named a tease!

It appears Encore Lady is well named too as she is providing you with lots of encores. Big Grin

I ordered Encore Lady and Tessie the Tease this year and am glad i did. I've tried to find Frothingslosh without success. Is Tribute to Rosalie a rebloomer?
