Yes, Alpine Lake, and Blue Doll have also opened blooms.....but, I didn't take time for pictures, and before I got down to do it............HAIL !....and lots of it! Along with torrential rain, and wind. Should be some "fresh" flowers, today.

SPRING BEACON

Suslik has one more bud to open...the high temps the last couple days(mid 80's) shortened up it's bloom time Sad . And my "park noid"....another pumila,is blooming all over the place ! I noticed that, where ever it's planted....sun...shade...under trees...good soil....bad dirt.....they all open at the same time Confused

I've got a big clump of that, Marilyn Rolling my eyes. ......and it would do GREAT in your garden Sticking tongue out ! There are going to be quite a few that need "shared" this year, so, if anybody sees something they would like....don't be shy !
There are several more in bloom....I'm getting behind with pictures ALREADY *Blush*

got this one , as a bonus plant, from Wilde's....they called it "Gold Scarlet" Shrug! . It's obviously "gold"...but I don't see any "Scarlet" Hilarious! . It's obviously not a 'registered" iris, so maybe they either 'lost" the real name, or, perhaps it's just a chance seedling that came up in their beds Confused

I took a walk , with the camera, this morning....and after all the rain (almost 5 inches), snow flurries, and cold weather.....there isn't much out there ! At least, anything worth taking a picture of Sad .

Reddy Set managed to "soldier through'

You must have put some good "genes" in this one, Lucy!!!

There are a lot of buds coming on the SDB's, so, if TONIGHTS rain isn't too bad, maybe tomorrow will be a "better day" Shrug!
Any open bloom...except for some tulips, and grape hyacinths , look pretty much like this:
