Well, it's rainy and COLD today( calling for a frost tonight), so it looks like the iris are "on hold"! Yesterday, Brighde was about 1/2 open...and it's about 1/2 open now! Supposed to get much warmer starting tomorrow, so...hopefully!

Was 32 degrees this morning at 4:00, but it ususally drops some before the sun comes up. Hope not.

I hope not too. So depressing to be in the bloom season and a weather related event to negatively impact it. I have had blooms some years that were thin and weak from late freezes. Sort of looked like they had been cooked a bit. Hope this is the last morning you have this year that supports frost. I can see my neighbors chimney....she has a fire burning this morning but it is not cold enough to impact the plants.

John wrapped colored plant tape around Little Hiawatha so we can see it trying to hide in Brassie clump. Don't worry, Aryln, we will tame those Indians yet.

I really like Indian Pow Wow! Lovey dubby Is that an intermediate?? You now have some TB's open, you're on your way. The beds look Great! I have an intermediate that looks like it will open either today or tomorrow. It's supposed to warm up some now, so things should get going shortly. Lovey dubby

Thanks, Lucy ( and John, Too!) for helping me "round up Indians! Yeah, Indian Pow Wow is a neat iris! I love blue beards, and I like brown as a color, so it's tight up my alley! The browns, reds, brownish golds ,etc. seem to be the ones I always look at first. I'll get some bed shots of the other, newer beds today, but ,of course, stalk count is way lower there, as the plants were just put in last year.....Arlyn

I was going to ask how many folks stop in the middle of the street when the beds are in bloom. Bonnie and Mary Ann beat me to it.
