Well my favorite intermediate iris has been blooming here. Not near as many stalks as last year, because of the mild winter.

Furioso bloomed like a fool in 2010 when we got lots of snow as well as a very cold winter for here. This year I have 5 stalks on the same row as below in 2010. Mild winter this year.

absolutely gorgeous. My irises have just barely started to peek up from the ground! I won't see stalks for at least another month or two... but as much snow as I packed on them (when I shoveled my driveway I put that snow right where they live) I'm hoping to have a good crop of flowers this year unlike last year where I didn't get hardly anything!

Your blooms look fantastic! I just have two or three SDB's blooming now, and my only intermediate that even has any buds is Rick Tasco's HOT GLOW. So I think it's going to be a while before I see any blooms on them. I love your RARE EDITION, DELIRIUM and TANTRUM!

It's been pouring rain all night, so whatever blooms are out there will be ruined. So I probably won't have anymore pictures for a couple of days.

Thanks for all the comments. It is so nice to see some color out there. Soon I will be seeing blooms on my newly arrived dayliles from Fla. I have scapes, but I will post pictures on that forum.

Sue,

I am using a Fulifilm Finepix S1500. It has automatic focus, I don't know how to use fancy cameras. But I do have a nice editing program.

Delirium again, it is just so pretty.
