Another amazing season in the books! It's always a bit sad at the end and it never lasts as long as we would hope. Mine should be closing out within the next two weeks Thumbs down Thank you for sharing your beautiful garden. So many lovelies as always.

Thanks Tom! So sorry to see your season ending. I really enjoy seeing all of your newer iris, especially the last two! Your pictures and commentary are both informative and amazing - not necessarily in that order. I am happy for you that you had such a nice bloom after last year's disaster.

Now....any baby horse pictures this year????

Thanks Tom for the wonderful iris show and documentary. Hurray! Hurray! I've learned a lot from you and the other posters about iris culture. I can only hope that my garden will grow to be as successful and beautiful as yours. I'm so glad that you had a better iris season than last, as that gives me the confidence I need to continue to forge ahead in gardening with irises. BTW, I hope that I get to experience one of those Tommy boxes that I keep reading about. Whistling I'm keeping my eyes and I'm all ears! out for notice of your rhizome sale next month.

Leslie, You wanted to see some additional pictures of Gentle Soul. Smiling I took a couple of a new bloom last evening. Kind of affected by the rain.

Here are a couple more pictures of "Skipper". He wasn't cooperating much this day, I want to take some once a month to see his progression. It's so darn muddy out now and he loves to get dirty, (like most boys).

Here's a pic of my NOID mauve historic, looks like a couple that I've seen, but no positive ID.
