Iris are Growing Well

The season is slow this year but I do have the Iris up through the ground well.


My Iris don't start blooming here until the beginning of June but it's so nice to see them up and growing so well. Frost never seems to effect the greenery here. I have daylilys, sedum, mums and daisys have very active growth going on. The snow tonight shouldn't affect any of these. It seems so strange to be getting snow the end of March that is going to result in accumulation. Not much but any accumulation is something. What a weird difference for this month compared to last year.

Glad your irises are looking good. They aren't fazed by snow. Can't wait to see all the colors.

I waited for you to back for so long. Hehe. How is your crabapple tree looks like now? Just curious. We can't plant it here.

That warm spell started the irises growing fast.Mine were starting up to in the woodland bed. But this is such a nasty day here in the Buckeye state.
I love Yorkies. They are the sweetest dogs. Do you raise and sell them?

My irises are making a good showing too. Last year was a very strange year -- everything was early. This year everything is taking its time.

I like the name iris in Japanese which is AYAME. Iris have such a vibrant unique colour.
