MED: First bloom!!

From: "Sterling Okase" <sterling_o@hotmail.com>

Hi all,

I FINALLY have iris bloom!!! I have been checking for stalks for WEEKS 
now and have not seen a one. Well, to my surprise, I spied something 
yellow in my garden that DIDN'T look like a dandelion. It was 
something I haven't seen bloom before, it was LITTLE MELLA. It is an 
MDB dressed in soft, pale yellow with a hint of a brown spot on the 
falls. Beards are pure white. It looked rather historic (much like BEE 
WINGS) but was introduced through Miller's Manor Gardens in 1981. I 
guess it's the I. mellita parentage on both sides that make it look 
that way. It is very cute and I am VERY, VERY relieved that I finally 
have bloom coming.
