And then there is this MDB Tiny Beacon. It may be tiny but it took it's beard steroids! It has triangles! First time bloom here.

Please excuse the dirty leaves! Thumb of 2018-04-01/Lestv/50794c
Thumb of 2018-04-01/Lestv/924202

I think mine is a chimera beard-wise as it usually has a normal beard - see Liz's database pic. I kind of like the crazy triangles though. Cute little iris.

I used this organic spray to get rid of the aphids. It made the leaves look wet all the time and sticky. So now they all have dirt stuck to them. Thumbs down And the aphids are back laughing at me. Angry

Winter Embrace and Tiny Beacon... Lovey dubby

Thanks to everyone who is posting pictures in various threads. I'm hoping that the 1-3" of snow predicted for tonight is someone's bad idea of an April Fool's Day joke, but if not, I'm really going to need those pictures tomorrow.

Beacon is amazing. It must really be something in the garden.
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

I'm NOT going to look at the rest of their irises... Angel Hilarious!
