Hi Mary Lou,
Both of those are attractive looking iris.  One can really see Mother Earth's resemblance in the first picture. Maybe come this spring the stalks will improve for you. Many times maiden bloom doesn't reflect it's true potential.

Spring maiden photos of the first 2 from this cross of real oldies.
The second one has a bud in the fan that can't make it with the
cold that's coming.  Both healthy, big blooms with nice substance
but weak stalks.
These were left in place for one last chance when I yanked 95% of
the 03 seed crop this summer.
