Oh Francelle they are lovely!  I'll do a little rain dance in hopes of sending some your way!  We are up to our knees in it right now, which is good.  It is the Spring rain season for us, but I hope for enough to get you through the hot season!
Can anyone tell me what causes the phenomenon of blooming out!  I separated and replanted one of my rebloomers last year.  Two of the rhizomes bloomed in the fall!  Last thing I expected after separating them and I wondered if that had happened to them.  I have not ever experienced that to my knowledge.  If those 2 rhizomes bloomed out in the fall, will they die this spring? 
Thanks for any help that anyone can give!

Francelle, that is a lovely bloom.  When does it start reblooming for you?  What is your zone?  Do you think it would be hardy enough for more harsh zones? 
I've had Mariposa Skies for several years and it's never attempted to rebloom.  I crossed MS onto Bridge In Time but only have one seedling germinate from it and one more in the pot this year.  Will hope to see the one bloom this spring.  The two irises share a lot of DNA and I suspect this could be the reason for the low germination.  Inbreeding. 
If you don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
