Beautiful, Rita,

I love Starblaze...such a lovely color, but Golden Panther takes the cake! They are all mouth-watering, though.

I can see this year just with the small amount of bloom there first year that this iris bed will be just stunning given time. The entire middle backyard that I made last year out of what used to be my veggie garden has just turned out so well. I have all those daylily sections, some with new ones and the late bloomers section that I moved over to the back. Then I just added lilies this spring. And I had spring bulbs in there and intend to add more this fall. The Dutch Iris section has lots of bloom stalks so should be lovely.

The entire thing has turned out well even if I was complaining this spring that the iris section wasn't growing. It is doing better than I first thought and the Dutch Iris in there do add lots of color.

Some real showstoppers here, I should just stop looking. I love the dark iris, but these are just so bright, I really like each one. The last picture of the garden is just lovely.

There are Dutch Iris planted between the TB Iris rhizomes and that really helps give it more color. Next year it should really look good.

I love Abbondonza, it looks great with those yellow and white dutch irises. I also love your view.

From your picture I can see why Golden Panther is so popular. For me it has always been small.

Golden Panter is gorgeous. My picture doesn't do it justice.

I am in iris withdrawal. Although, truth to tell I have three tall beardeds still blooming and it is May 25th and my first one bloomed April 5th. I guess I need to quit whining.
