Thumb of 2017-04-19/crowrita1/4c81b0
SPARKS FLY (Black 2000) This one is still *tight*, and may not get a chance to "relax" before some pretty nasty weather hits us Crying !
again, Thanks to all the hybridizers, vendors, and "iris buddies" , that make my garden colorful !!
and here's one to "guess at" ..........received this as a bonus in '15, and this is it's first bloom. It was marked "pumila", and I thought at the time the rhizome was "too big", and this year, the top of the bloom is at 15", and although the falls are 'tucked under" like a pumila, and the 'color" would fit....it's NOT a pumila, or, if it IS, it's a real giant, at almost three times the size Sticking tongue out .

I enjoy your pictures, Arlyn. You have so many I have never seen before, especially the historic ones.

Mrs Red was looking over my shoulder a few days ago and commenting on the website pictures I was gawking at. I was looking at historics and she asked what made them historic; I let her know at least 30 years old. Then comes the comment that I'm doubly historic followed by laughing. Her day is coming pretty soon. And I gotta get her sense of humor checked.

Much rain for the third day. Hoping it makes a big dent in our drought level.

Thank you. It is more red than it is sometimes here, which I am glad to see. Soil differences I suppose.

Reddy Set is a really cute iris. I notice that some of Arlyn's seem to have less white edging then others. It's growing nicely here and should bloom in a while.

You're right, Tom....some blooms have almost no "edging" at all, others have more.... Shrug! ! I wonder if it's temperature related, or has more to do with the age of the bloom Confused . I'll have to pay more attention Sticking tongue out .

I am trying to get the color all the way to the edge of the falls, more difficult in a SDB where an amoena is expanding the pumila fall spot.. The TB amoenas are a different type.

It started out sunny, toda...but that went away pretty quickly, and it's looking like it may rain, so I took some pix....some are sort of "fuzzy", but I'm not sure if it was the wind shaking the blooms...or ME shaking the camera Rolling on the floor laughing !

It is a sweet little iris !! I don't have time , now, to post everything from today with the hybridizer's info......(truthfully, I left the data sheet down at the garage, and I'm too lazy to walk down and get it Sticking tongue out Sticking tongue out ), but I will post this one...not the best pic....tomorrows will be better, as there should be a few more open flowers...but see if anyone knows what it is!
