Hurray! You have a bunch already! 40 degrees here this morning, that will slow things down I think. Lots of rain predicted for this week here too.

I was at the "Landis Valley Herb and Garden" Fair just North of Lancaster PA this last Friday and Saturday. The temps were VERY cool and rainy (low 50's for high). It supposed to be up in the high 80's by late this week. This weather is super crazy. It is all the customers talked about.

Not to take away from Pam, but I live sort of between Pam and Greg. Here is one of the overgrown beds today, mostly Sass, Bliss, EB Williamson and Cayeux.

Leslie that was the best shot I could get. It bloomed way down in the foliage.
If it has another bloom I will try again!

I am also in PA. I'm new here (less than 2 years) so I haven't grown iris except in more southern climates. I think I might plant some this fall.
Keep going!
