Hey Lew!!!
 You can be excited with me!! This is my first year with my 300+ plants and I 
can't wait for them to start blooming!! I've been checking them every single 
day. I can't get over how much they've grown in the last week. Seems like 
they went from 8 inches to 24 inches over night!
 But, yesterday I was rewarded for my "patience". I found 4 huge stalks 
coming up on Winter Olympics (TB) and 4 on Silent Tears and 2 on Hi (which I 
believe are both IBs). I'm going to be a total wreck by the end of May! This 
is almost as bad as being pregnant!! Well...ok...not quite that bad but it's 
awfully close!
 Hang in there!! If you tend them, they will bloom!!

Have fun!

where I'm spending so much time outside that my son asks if we will have 
dinner before the Irises make flowers or after! He's becoming a pro at 
spotting the stalks!!
