Good Morning!
Oh Mike, I hope that it wasn't bad.  We had frost night before last.  We went out last night to get some cut ris very early yesterday morning for church.  The iris looked like the reblommers look here in late Oct. after they get hit by frost.  It looked like the iris that were damaged here were the open blooms and the beds sheltered by the barn were fine.  Good Luck and keep us posted.  Same here, we are above Sacramento and were have never been hit by frost this last in the year.

Well....so much for global warming.  Peak bloom has been inching later and later every year, this year it we are just approaching it and we had a freeze last night.....never before in our history have we even been close to freezing during TB bloom.  Fortunately it wasn't a hard freeze but it was quite frosty this morning.  Will have to asses the damage after sunrise....
