It's France, Bonnie. I've seen buds on Irish Darling, St Petersburg, Blueberry Tart, It's Not Over, Je M'Appelle Reviens (I think!) and a few others. In England we won't see any iris action for a while yet!
I've been picking mimosa for the house - I really love it, it's like a sign of warm Spring weather on the way. Wish I could send you a bunch to put in a vase by your bed - it's so cheerful and it smells lovely.
How are you getting on with Tom's hot toddies?
