    WOW!! You have so many gorgeous iris I can't make up my mind which is my favourite. (Off to look at them again.)
    OK I've come to the conclusion that they ALL are. :D
    I wouldn't mind finding some volunteer tulips in my garden that look as good as your ones.
    By the way that's a great picture of little BeBee. :smt054

    Amazing & gorgeous! Are you breeding iris? I saw several labelled 'first bloom on seedling iris'
    What does NOID stand for? Not IDed?

    Wowie Zowie!! You do have a way with iris. I wondered where the Pixie Flirt came from in my raised bed, must have been one you sent me :p Mine are starting to do their thing, slowly. I'm afraid they will all burst into bloom when we are on vacation :-? Did the little orange and black take off that I sent you?? Mine seem to have doubled this year!

    Wait a minute, I have to wipe away some drool... There. Your Iris are gorgeous! I've never had any luck with the bearded Iris, but I might have to try again. The little BeBee is my favourite. ;-)

    Did I get an Iris from you afew years ago? I see the one I got (from someone who packaged it so beautifully to mail to me I thought it was from a company) is getting ready to pop a bloom open. I can't even remember what color it was, but I know I loved it when I asked for it otherwise I wouldn't have asked :rolleyes:....waiting, waiting. Yours are all so beautiful.

    It's just like going to an Iris show, only better. I did not have to leave home. A great show.

    Truly outstanding tpl! I wish I could give you another seed, but they seem to top out at 1. Your photos of the irises are great too. Plant catalog worthy.

    the other is identical but orange. That one is finished but the black is going strong and spreading like crazy (as you can tell by last years photo)
