Looks like another nice one, Mike.
I'm still waiting for my I reticulata buds to open, then it'll soon be game on here.  Many years, we have overlap with many classes of iris blooming at the same time.  Peak here is usually mid June, mostly MDB's and SDB's.

and I crossed it with the golden brown rimmed standards seedling too.... :-)
thanks Janet
attached is the seedling.  will come out in 2011 but can't think of a name yet... oh, it reblooms too.
hardest flower to get the color right.  usually the standards fade out in the pictures because the falls are so dark. 
Very cold and wet bloom season here, still not at TB peak.  10 years ago peak was April 15th, has been trending later and later every year since.  Last few years it has been around the 23rd of April, this year it will be about the middle of next week.....we still have SDBs and IBs blooming.
