Good eye, Donald - yes, those are dandelion seed heads.  Everything is
growing out of class this spring <g>  (not really, it's an odd angle
that makes them look 4 ft tall).

The most likely looking candidate as a pollen source is HOLIDAY HOUSE,
but how in the world would a tangerine pink seedling come from a first
generation cross with I. pallida?

That's not possible!.....<g>

I looked at it again - standards are clear pale pink, mud is just on
falls.  Anthocyanin wash mostly on the upper part of the falls, the rest
the same pale pink as the standards.  So it's not just tangerine pink,
it's tangerine pink amoena...

Pallidas have usually been among the first TB's to start blooming in my
garden (when they aren't frozen out), following closely behind I.
germanica.  But I've been avoiding early bloomers here, so it may be
relatively later than most. ?is that an answer? <g>

<Aren't the pallidas usually later blooming?  They are here in relation
to the general iris population.

 What are the little puffball spheres in the background?  They look too
tall for dandylions and it seems like it would be too early anyway.
