After moving late in the year (2003) I didn't expect much bloom this year. 
Fortunately for the twitching tweezer syndrome, it looks like I will be blessed. 
 Baby Blessed is the first to bloom.

Most of the irises are looking great.  As the garden was being tilled we 
discovered the area had been a feedlot.  I've been hesitant to add fertilizer at 
this point!  

Some of these irises came from the SKIS rhizome sales.  They decided to 
remove many of the rebloomers from the display garden. There were half a dozen bags 
of irises from this sale that stayed in my trunk from the end of July until I 
could start planting about the first of October.  I am seeing some scattered 
bloom from this group but not much, yet. Any bloom is a big surprise! 

The irises from the northern bed were out of the ground for about 6 weeks and 
spent that time in plastic bags hanging in my shed.  This is the group that 
I'm seeing the most stalks in at this time.  Winesap, Innocent Star, Gold 
Country and Speculator are in my rebloom bed and will be showing off big time, but 
others from this bed will bloom well also.  

The irises that were still in pots are showing the least amount of stalks.  

I expect to see a lot of bloomstalks hit the ground but at least I have 

It looks like the seedlings are going to be showing off enough to keep me 
interested.  There will be blooms on several from my Chinese New Year and Theme 
Master seedlings.  Also, blooms on the Theme Master X Visiting Royalty cross.
