Betty has kindly offered to test a couple for me, too. And even the big D and Trish are going to. And Sue. This is such fun!

Sticking out bottom lip and pouting. I don't think I got that one Charleen. I still have two yet to bloom so we will see. I have one that has a couple of big buds on it but I'll have to wait a few days to see what it is. If not, Polly I'm going to have to have one like Charleens got. LOL I'm such an addict for these little sweet thangs. By the way, I'm having computer problems and will not be on here until I get it in the shop. In the mean time I'm going to try to ship ya'll a start of the big Pink La Iris either sometime this weekend or Monday.Thumb of 2011-05-12/lovelyiris/9cd321
This is really a very pretty pink iris with a big fat bloom. The color is a little off in this photo.

That pink LA is so pretty, I know just where I'm gonna put mine!

I noticed some fatty fans on some JIs today, so blooms are on the way! I've been in Iris Heaven this spring, they have been breathtaking. I've been so enraptured with the Irises, it hasn't even bothered me that several Lilies are no shows this year. Burrowing rodents were the culprits in one bed, but in a couple of others I have no explanation- at least 3 big, established clumps of Asiatics are simply gone. Oh well, space to plant something new, LOL!

Have your sibs bloomed yet, Neal? Isn't it early for you for JIs? Mine bloom after the sibs.

The sibs are showing buds and I'll be seeing blooms any day now. The JIs look like they will follow the sibs as usual.

Yours are just a little closer together than mine, then. I have a good break between sibs and JIs.

Ah, and this is the beauty of Louisianas, they fill in that gap. One shouldn't go any longer without Iris blooms than one has to, LOL.

Charleen, aren't they wonderful! Seeing your first JI blooms is all it takes to get totally hooked.

My first Sibs started opening today! The old varieties are always first to bloom for me, probably Caesar or Caesar's Brother.

golly gee it is hard for me to believe that you have beardless bloom, my medians are still not at peak and no TB yet in bloom so no beardless yet.

Great for you to test for Polly Charlene to see if we can push the seasons on the beardless. I love my iris and can not tell you wish I love the most, just think IRIS will do. From Feb to August...what more can a gal ask for.

JoAnn, smiling over the typo. That is interesting!

In a way it's sad to have to shake the eggs, but I wouldn't want them year round either. Polly has the perfect place. They land, they leave.

Dee, I'm always suprised to see geese in the field. They'll nest if the water hasn't drained away. I wonder how their chicks learn to swim since the water isn't deep at all.

We have more geese than we've ever had before and now we don't see many ducks. I wish it would reverse itself or let people hunt them more.

Dahlia, smiling. Yes, they ARE Canadian geese come to think of it :o)

Charleen, how beautiful!! They are perfect!

Marian, smiling over the pot :o)

Big Pink is beautiful too!

Neal, what a shame about your lilies. I've had a couple dwindle done to nothing, but I mourn their loss, but they do still sell them.

It looks like I'll have Iris before any Siberians.

Neal, I have a two no ID Siberian's. I wonder if one is Caesar's Brother. One has short stalks and the other tall.

Charleen, pots of color! It is exciting and I love the size of the purple one!

Dee, I agree. I just love iris too.

My first Sibs came from from my first gardening inspiration, a sweet older lady who lived down the road from my childhood home. She had flowers everywhere, her family thought she was nuts for paying $50 for a single Iris. Maybe so, but it's the kind of crazy we can all understand, LOL. When I knew her I was a teen, and she was no longer acquiring new varieties by that time, but still lovingly caring for all she had collected. She only had the one variety of Sibs, sprinkled here and there all over the garden in big, well established clumps, so I assume they are one of the old standby varieties.
