Iris reticulata 2019

These seem a bit early but Avery nice surprise. Frozen solid but iris  reticulata ‘happiness’ and then ‘Mars Landing’.

Some years the bulbs split into smithereens but these look ok to me.

Beautiful photos, Steve.  I can't compete.

Iris 'Sunshine'  I spotted it showing a bit of yellow in the frame and thought I'll take you into the greenhouse tomorrow but a slug got there before me.  I caught it in the act so it is no more.
