I "thought" things were running late, this year (and some things are), but the irises seem right on schedule! This little pumila noid is almost always the "first in line", and it's "track record" shows:

There are lots of stalks, that's for sure ! I'm just hoping nothing, weather wise, comes along to mess them up ! My Sister (and her kids), in Denver had a bunch of snow, and from the pix they sent me, their "spring gardens" are pretty well destroyed . Stalks broken, plants "mashed down", really sad looking !
A few bed shots from this morning. The winds, and rains of the last, few days did "some" damage, but, all-in-all, not too bad! I'm "guessing" the beds are just about at 'peak" bloom.
The weeds and grass sure have been liking the rain ! I'll have my work cut out for me, when bloom is over...besides cutting a bunch of stalks, there will be tons of "weedy things" to deal with !
