I have some open today first time this season.

SPIRIT MOUNTAIN. Oh wow, I just went ga-ga when I saw this bloom today. A deep rich violet blue. Big flower too. I got it in 2010 from Scheiners, it bloomed in 2011 but I had a bunch of them in a bad spot. Moved it after bloom and it now is out in front where it can really be seen.

QUAIL ALE out in the front.

QUAIL ALE again.

This lovely thing is way up in the backyard iris garden. PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. I think it is a stunner.

Here it is again. PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

Just wonderful iris today! Spirit Mountain is really a beauty, glad you brought it out where it can be appreciated :) I really like the broken color iris, just so different, but Pursuit of Happiness, whoa, that is gorgeous. Oh well, you guessed by now, I like every one :) Is that rose buds in back of Evening Tiding?

Your Evening Tidings is converting me to violet-blue irises. What a beautiful, vivid color. You have the perfect back-drop to show it off, too. Evening Drama really caught my eye too. Love those dark colors!

Renee, I love dark colors and blues in my iris. And I also love contrast so I have many blues, darker ones and two colors contrasting. I like dramatic.

Last year I never did order any new iris. I did move some iris out of the garden permantly but I had to move others from that bad location that wasn't working so I filled up my spots. Now I have no room at all for new ones. Oh well, the ones I have I am very pleased with.
