Blinking Blinking I'll get some pix (haven't unpacked the 'camera box" yet *Blush* )tomorrow, but, darn if there isn't an I. reticulata blooming ! I overlooked it yesterday ,(it's obvious it has been open for several days) thinking it was a crocus. Last year, the first was on the 26th of March....so...is it "climate change" ? "Global warming" ? "Seasonal cycle differences" ? I dunno', but, I'll take it !
Losses don't look to be TOO bad...nowhere near what it was last spring, anyway....but I do see a few (mostly newly planted last season)that are goners. another 2 weeks will show , for sure, what survived...and what didn't .

Our reticulata (Eyecatcher) opened March 1 a day earlier than last year, but we had some really warm weather in Feb. Colder again.

I. reticulata var. "Spot On"

this is the only one in bloom, and, in fact, I see quite a few "bare spots" in the bulb iris area....so, either the foliage hasn't pushed up yet....or I had a bunch "die out" Confused

None of my bulb irises came up this year, Arlyn. Well, I take that back the dutch irises all have tall foliage. But the little early irises... nothing. I am giving up on them. Yours and Lucy's look a treat!

Well, I gave up and dug out the *old* computer, as I can't figure out how to "do" pix on either of the new ones Confused !

SUSLIK (John Burton 1995 / 96)
This is the first I've seen this one in bloom, as it was just planted last year. Although it was a "spring planted" one, it has made great growth, with several open now, and several more to come!
Thumb of 2017-04-11/crowrita1/d8c689
this is my little "park noid"...and it's not this *fuzzy* in real life *Blush* ......it's been blooming for several days, also. All, so far, are quite early compared to last year ! I'll look it up, later, to say just *how* much earlier.

BLUE DOLL (Warburton 1958) is 'just about !
