So pretty. Will it ever be spring? Luckily my whole house is filled with houseplant blooms but I miss the butterflies.

Not 60 now more like 40. 60 at this time of the year is very rare and far between like first time in I think they said 30+ years. Suppose to rain after Thurs for 6 days which is the norm for this time of the year.

60 degrees sounds like a heat wave to me!! I would be thrilled if it would just get back up to the 40's...

I am enjoying all the photos... keep 'em coming...
Blessed are the cracked; for it is they who let in the light.

60 in Las Vegas and Phoenix/Scottsdale. We will love it while it lasts. No it will not get colder, it will get hotter. Last year in April we were in the high 90s. DG site i having major problems this morning. Very slow and photo will not enlarge.
If it is not going to affect you five years from now, do not let it get you down.

Hybridize Daylilies and Iris but probably loosing the daylilies they take too much iris seedling room away from me.
Turning to specialize in Arilbreds which according to the experts can not be grown in the Midatlantic so I am assuming Maryland in not part of that.

Well Anita YOU have proved them all wrong. They are not only surviving but doing extremely well. You learned what and how to push the envelope very well.

Hello from the wilds of Lincolnshire in England. It will be a while before we can do much outside here, but the crocuses are begining to show yellow so spring must be round the corner!

We moved here from Texas in 2007 and one of the first things I did was create my Iris Bed. We have a fairly large garden that was just lawn and an old Bramley apple when we arrived - its rather different now!!

Here is the Iris bed just after it was created.

Cool, Carol from England! How nice to have you here!

Are you familiar with Carol Austin? I was just talking about her book 'Irises'.

Lovely landscape.

What made you move to England? Some different than Texas!

Ah well! we came from England in the first place, spent 4 years in Texas, then got driven home by health insurance costs when DH turned 65 with no elligibility fot medicare. Long story and very boring.

Things grow better here though, they don't fry in summer and we are on extremely well drained soil so they don't get soggy and frozen in winter. Though we have had more than our fair share of snow this winter!!

I have the book, but I only use books for the pictures - I find they all tell you you can't do this or that in ... area and I know they are wrong because I have! I had gorgeous Irises in Texas, but I planted them in the shade of a tree so the sunlight was dappled - strong enough to ripen the corms but not to fry them up.

Here is the Iris bed again last summer, blooming nicely.

Lovely,

Isn't that something that the US doesn't have the health insurance to keep people here.

I have gained a lot of knowledge from 'Irises' about the beardless irises, but it is definitely an eye candy book. But certainly nothing works as well as your own experiance.

Thank-you!

Lincolnshire is a large county on the East side of the country. Its either North Midlands, or the southern bit of Northern England depending on which end of the county you live, and I'm about half way up, so take your pick! We live in a very small village called New York, which is 10 miles from the coast at Boston, from where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed in the 1600s.

Seagate Irises are towards the south of Lincolnshire, and that's where the bulk of mine came from. They grow some real beauties and their catalogue is worthwhile just for reference purposes. They have a good website too at http://www.irises.co.uk/

This is my favourite Bearded Iris its called Copatonic. (I take loads of pictures of everything I'll have to look for my Siberians for you.)

I will have to get the map out and see if that is near any of my customers.

I still carry Copatonic and love it..great shot by the way.

Thank you for sharing the site will have to go and look, always love seeing other sites overseas to see what they have and offer.
