Leon, pardon the language, and Leslie, pardon the post on your beautiful iris show but i just gotta show Leon this pic. @TBGDN

I don't know whose photo this is or where it was taken. It was sent to me by a friend a some time ago. Your weather reminded me of it.

Well, sad to say.....spring ain't coming HERE, this weekend ! That rascally weather dude says "measurable snow", on Sunday, and generally, windy, cold , and gloomy, the rest of the time Glare . They give a "possibility" of *normal* temps (50's) for next Wednesday or Thursday.....but, they "lie" a lot Shrug!

No internet yet so hard to post lately.

California Boy opened yesterday. I really like the cooked yellow/ mustard against purple beards.

Travelling to the old garden there's a little more action.

Cat's Eye from Neil and Tom opening together. I have some decent clumps in different areas. Very nice and it's way more deep Ruby vs the photo image.

Another mystery noid from Shady Spot iris. I haven't seen this one yet, but it looks more modern vs historic. Hells Yeah!

One of my first purchased iris from Iris Sisters. One of my favorites which I almost lost all to rot. Haven't seen a bloom in 2 years and thought. I labeled it "Art School?" on my spreadsheet thinking it was a mislabeled or mixed up iris from the move. It's correct luckily!

Art School is still alive in my garden and labeled correct. Hadn't seen her since bloom of 2016. Beyond the rain happening she has a little cold damage too. Next bloom should be better looking. Overall substance is great!

Bingo Bango Bongo has opened for 2 years in a row. Again one of my first to open last year...in the rain. Colors are spot on in both pics but my phone camera is working overtime before my eyes trying to get the truest match. My dslr camera shows it to be blue, which it is not.
