I got the snow but no open iris. We live just a few miles from one another. We had snow while the sun was shining today and when it quit snowing the sun was gone. The clouds that came in looked like a major storm was going to get here but the sun and wind came at the same time. It is the strangest weather I have ever experienced in the spring. Has anyone else experienced weather like this lately?
The iris is certainly a lovely color. You are a great iris breeder.

A new pumila seedling of mine bloomed for the first time last week. It is a cross of my pumila seedling 2-8 X 'Burst of Blue'. "BofB" is a pumila from the Willotts that was registered as an MDB. My seedling is a pretty little thing, 4 and 1/2" tall, and here are 3 photos. The first 2 photos were taken on April 1; the third was taken on April 2. It survived the April 2 weather just fine!
