A surprise.  This is very late for me here and usually on the rare occasions 
when an iris attempts to bloom, the buds dry up.  Of seven buds, only one of 
the terminal buds dried up.  So it's a welcome surprise to have watched this 
stalk bloom in spite of the heat and wind.  What's the official description 
of the color, Griff?  The buds are definitely a pink shade, but the actual 
effect of the bloom is more that of yellow than pink and a really close 
examination says its a very pale orange with pink and yellow blended into 
it.  It's what I call 'champagne', but I'm not sure that's a valid color - 
just that it describes a color class where this fits.  In any case, it's the 
only 'champagne' color that's done well, even briefly.  I hope it continues 
the pattern in subsequent seasons.
