This has been a very cool, wet spring here in Utah. I feel like I am back in the mid-West for an Ohio spring. I thought I'd have irises blooming this week to show here, but the 'mini's are still straggling along, and all that is open are the whites and purple irises.
So, maybe next week, or the week after that, my irises will be in their full glory. Right now I have a mini that is blooming for the first time. The wine/maroon color of the falls is pretty true to reality in this photo. I'm not so fond of the blue/purple beard, though. A bit too much craziness for me. :)
I do believe the weather will warm up. Or maybe we'll just skip 'spring' , and head right for summer, with sudden heat. (In June?)
