Dot, they are all stunning. I think irises must be the most beautiful flower to grow.

Sue - oh gaw.. that's GORGEOUS. I *LOVE* that Iris! I'm gonna have to see if I can find it anywhere here...

On my own side of the funny farm, I have a stalk? holy guacamole, this is the EARLIEST I've *EVER* seen a flower stalk. I usually see my irises blooming mid-May - early June. Not Easter.

NoID. Heck, I don't even know what color it's gonna be. All the irises in this particular bed are NoIDs. Not very tall, either.

Yes, I know this area is heavily overgrown, but this is the first year that these particular irises are actually GROWING, so I'll have to thin them out this summer. This particular set of irises are so squished next to the road & the driveway.. and you can see that they're growing on the wrong side of the paving edger!

Delirium is one of the favorites in my garden, too.

Toni, I can just tell that one is going to be beautiful. I bet it will be......purple and white. Seriously, can't wait to see the picture!

Yours has such deeper colors than mine do, Sue. I think our warm climate is responsible, but I do like the colors on yours better.

It was cool and overcast when I took those shots, storm coming in, it's already lightened up Betty! My daylilies do the same thing if it's overcast and cool, open with much deeper color.
