Finally some blooms!

This has been a long cold winter. Things are just now beginning to pop out. And, of course, today it's back to raining again. It started out nice and sunny and decent temps. Now this. I'm so sick of rain and cold I could scream!

Anyway, the irises are popping up like crazy and should be in full bloom in another week or so, providing it warms back up again and the rain goes away. Geesh...

These two were taken this morning before the rain.

Beautiful photos!

It seems to me that the irises here have been sparse, & we too had a very cold, very dry winter.

Thanks Sylvia. Unfortunately, our winter has been anything but dry. It rained about 75% of the time. As much as I hated it, I think it's really benefited everything in my garden. I have lilies and things popping up that didn't come up the last couple of yrs. I think it's going to be a beautiful spring.

RE: Finally some blooms!

We had rain this week!!! Unheard of. We're over 34 inches and the weeds have loved it too.

Great picture of Credible Justification. Thanks for the pics!

RE: Finally some blooms!

I love Red Rider- that velvety fall is so soft and pretty. Thanks for the photos.

RE: Finally some blooms!

Very pretty, so nice to see some iris blooming! Credible Justification has a lot going on, I like it. Love the color of Red Rider too.
