I took a whole lot of pictures last year when the Irises came up so this year I thought just one would show you that they are coming up just fine. There is one that is shorter this year than the previous year but it is still blooming. It will be interesting to see if they remain brown or turn purple, they say that if pesticide or weed killer that might change the color of the bud, sometimes they go back to the regular color or stay the same that they are now, so who knows what color they will be. Whatever it is, I love them.
