Welcome Brock! And please do start posting your photos ASAP -- we need more flowers during this drab time of year when we find ourselves inside more!

I have always admired your photos on DG Brock, sure do hope you will add some to the database over here! I am enjoying going through your Photobucket images, you make beautiful use of the morning light!

I'm so glad you're here, too. We're really in for a treat with some of your photos. You're in good company, I can't believe the quality of the photographers here. I think they all should go pro.

You'll find the photo program pretty easy, I think. And it's really nice you can put more than one image to a post. If you have any trouble with anything let us know.

And there's nothing you can screw up that I can't fix. So don't worry, just go ahead and try things.

Had a look and have to come back again and again to see your pictures. I love the ensata album. Just fantastic.
Thank you

Yes, I used to spend a lot of time working on PF, but I focus my attention on the AIS Encyclopedia now. I'll be happy to share here, but it gets priority when it comes to getting my photos up on a site.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Smiling

Great photos Brock. After looking at your Ensata Garden photos, I think I need 'Yae-Gosan'!!

And that's how it should be, Brock. Our mission here as far as pictures is not to compete with AIS, or plant files, but to compliment our cubit.

So, if someone comes to the cubit and sees a lovely irises, then six months later decides they want that iris, hopefully it should be in our database, and they can find it by searching tall bearded, purple, Keppel, say.

No way would we ever try, or wish to try to compete with AIS or plant files. That's way out of our range.

Oh dear, I really got behind, gorgeous photos on the last thread!!!

Hi Gordon, nice to see you! I am so impressed with anyone who tries hybridizing and look forward to pictures!

LOL, you don't disappoint! Both of those are to die for too!

Dee, gorgeous!!!!

Brock, another impressive person! I'll look at your pictures when I have time, but the sneak peek I took impressed me already!

Myself, for those newcomers who don't know me, I am the appreciater of iris others grow. I love them, but fight the iris borer so I have mostly common iris.

Sally, I call them 'historics' which they are. I love the old ones because they don't whine, they just bloom and they seem to resist borer. I love them! And beardless of course.

Kathy, yes, those are my homestead rescues and some of Mom's old ones she had when I was a kid. I got to see most of the rescures bloom, and last Fall dug and moved most of them, I'm anxious to see if they will all bloom this year or if they are too small again from being cleaned up.

Iris are the worst waiting game!

Hi all,
I come to Cubits via DG and the Iris cubit due to an early appreciation of beardless Iris. I’m an on and off gardener, off during my 24 years in Boston, back on now that I’m back in the burbs.

My love of Iris started early with yia yia’s Japanese Iris (that’s what they called it) which started with Mrs. Woodward, then traveled from my grandmother to mother to me. This NOID, with its deep purple flowers, little speckled bits and yellow “eyes” fascinated me. There are now hundreds of my favorite in various beds around the yard. My current best guess as to species is I. sanguinea. I’ve acquired a few companions over the last few years, some from friends (also NOIDs) and two from nurseries; I. ensata ‘Variegata’ and I. reticulata.

Big welcome Evan!

Please, please stick with us, LOL. We beardless lovers here are outnumbered by the bearded lovers. And some of us especially love the species.

Here's a series of threads from last year you might enjoy. One of our members, Boojum, has a huge collection of beardless.

So c'mon in and talk to us!

Japanese irises & siberian iris are different. I.sanguinea is one of the siberian species. Yours look nice & healthy.

I love species and wish I had them all. I have about 200 varieties of siberians and only less than 100 of JI.

Going to be getting 3 species and 2 JI this year.

Welcome and keep the pictures coming.

Wish Polly and Boojum would post more of these babies

Hi Evan, how wonderful to get the pass down plants. To me they are the real treasures that connect you to your own roots.

Those are beautiful!! I would treasure them too!
