Whaaaat! They are lovely but……. what time of year do they usually flower? Turvy-topsy!
They are early spring blooms – this is just their second year and it was end of Feb they flowered last year so yes, just a bit early!
Wel jel (!) I have never managed to get these to flower, what is your secret?
Not guilty of anything, I’m afraid – this is their second year and I suppose it’s just a case of benign neglect 😉
Oh no! your little iris are up and BLOOMING!! Don’t you wonder what will happen when winter finally arrives…then what will spring be like?
It was amazing to see them and they really did take me by surprise. We had a frost last night, one of only a very few this winter, so we shall see what happens…
On my goodness, what a lovely surprise indeed. I’ m going straighg out to check up on mine.
And what did you find? Anything or nothing,,,?
Mine aren’ t out yet. 😞
Happy New Year Cathy.
Wow, that IS early! Aren’t they lovely!
Yes indeed, and the surprise made it all the more special
Lovely surprise, I love the markings on this Iris. I spotted anemone blanda in flower today but snowdrops, crocus and Iris are just green shoots in my garden.
Yes, the markings are really striking. I noticed the common snowdrops are just beginning to poke through here, which is fairly normal as far as timing goes. My crocus are planted under grass so always take me surprise – must go and check them out though!
Whoa! No sign here… I hope she hasn’t deserted me.
Speak sternly to your mice perhaps?
Wow. These surprises scare me.
!!! What a surprise to come home to Cathy. No sign of mine yet but I see that yours are nestled in the shelter of a wall which must provide some extra central heating.
I have no idea when they started pushing through, Anna, as they were hidden by the grass – it is only their second year so I don’t really know how fussy they are and perhaps the nearby fence does make a difference
A new year’s holiday surprise. I think Kathleen’s been tricked into giving her treat!
I am left speechless.
I was too, rickii!
She’s just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
You are welcome – didn’ t want to keep them to myself!
Oh my goodness what a fabulous surprise….mine have stayed hidden below ground…they knew it was going to get cold and snowy!
