I think the reason OB is blooming so nicely for me, Walter, is because by 
the time any significant plant growth commences way up here in zone 3b - 
and before any TB would even consider starting to grow a bloomstalk - our 
hard freezes are essentially done for the season.  Not that we couldn't 
get a devastating late freeze, but those wild hot period/cold period 
swings that apparently happen in MS and TN during stalk development 
rarely happen here.  I guess there are advantages to having to suffer 
through a couple months of *everyone else's* spring bloom reports before 
my irises have even broken ground.  ;-)

Laurie - with another 8 new (to me) TBs open today in the garden!  Time 
to grab the digital camera, which at this point may as well be growing 
directly out of my hand!
