Looking through these makes me ready for spring to be here. Can we just skip winter this year?

Fluff - they are beautiful....I agree with you about wanting to skip winter this year. These pix make you yearn for warmth and blooms again don't they.

Thanks for sharing.

Love the blooms but I'm ready for some down time or for me...it will be getting caught up time this fall/winter...since stuff got so out of control with all our rain.

They're blooming now??? Wow. My DH cut mine down this spring, too. Never did a dang thing, poor babies.

Yours are beautiful! Smile

No mgt, that was from spring but I never posted pics. But what is crazy is that I did just go out today, after we had a freeze, and some new purple irises did have some buds. I'm afraid the freeze probably damaged the flowers though but I guess these will bloom in the spring and fall.

Oh ok, Fluffy. I did wonder. Neat that they did bloom...mine never did after the man cut them down. Big Grin It's a shame that you'll probably lose the ones in bud to a frost, but hey, crazy weather this year for sure.
