Re: Bloom Report

It really is a most unusual year.  We all knew it, and now I've 
further proof.  This morning 2 SDBs were open, RUBY WINGS and SPLASH 
OF RED.  I've never, never had anything open this early, May 5, the 
earliest before being May 19, a "normal" time.  So many IBs and SDBs 
showing bloom stalks, a few with color already evident.  We wonder if 
we'll have anything for our show, scheduled for May 30, but at least 
I don't see any TB stalks yet, so there should still be things by the 
end of the month, esp. if it cools a little.  But WOW!!  Iris on the 
5th of May.  Who'd have believed it in NW Iowa!
