I'm with you Betty!  I had amazing rebloomers early on this year, but sadly enough.  We had very early and prolonged frosts in our area this year and I have at least 12 iris that have shot up numerous stalks with the warming trends in between,  but the stalks that never came to be.  I also waited for a little color in the hopes of bringing them in, but that never happened.  Mother nature has managed to subdue the last of the rebloomers in our area.  So now............I am inpatiently awaiting the spring.LOL!  Thanks for sharing that lovely bud Grif!

Griff, Many of us are starved for rebloom, even if it's frozen!  You'll get to see the approximate colors even if the form isn't true!    Inspiration perhaps??
My garden saw four consecutive frosts starting on Oct. 13.  Not one bloom has made it through to bloom since.  We've had warm spells that created new stalks.  Some reached 12-14 inches in height, but none have even shown color before another freeze came. 
I feel extremely lucky to have had so much summer and early fall bloom. But, being me, I wanted MORE!  It's been good to see the things people have protected in various ways.  But, I'm still just a "teensy" bit jealous!  <vbg>
