    Beautiful Lois! Mine are still in the leaf form but I await their flowering with bated breath!

  • Oh, Kay, you must be way north. The Japanese Iris don’t last long … they bloomed after the regular purple ones we have and now are already dying off. The regular yellow iris are still going strong. So you have something nice to look forward to!!!
