YELLOW and a Vossen seedling with the left corner being a Norris seedling,
MASADA'S GLORY in the center back and AURORA'S VEIL toward the back on the
right. What can't be seen are a couple of shorter clumps beginning to bloom

very occasional and very brief breaks down to about 25mph. Didn't let up
'til nearly sundown. I'm really enjoying seeing iris blooms that are only
