Hello, all of you this fine morning!  Some of you posted rather odd photos of irises that were affected by the horrible freezes you experienced this spring.  We can have frost damage here, too, in the Northwest when the buds are still forming down in the fan.  An example:
NEFRET (Marky Smith, 2005).....AB.  The taller blossom has 1 standard and 4 falls, but one of the falls has 2 beards.  The lower blossom has 2 standards and 4 falls.  Both blossoms tried to have broken coloring.
Several blossoms this year had strange branching.....or none at all, like the pretty little IB that went haywire and had 3 buds side-by-side in one socket at the top of the stalk. But I guess Marky wins the prize, as 2 different irises of hers did the double beard gig.  There were many petals on some; some ABs lost their signals or had them re-configured in strange patterns; some bearded irises sent up a stalk with nothing on it.  However, despite these weird occurrences, it has been a decent bloom season.
