Iris graberiana 'yellow falls'
Iris hoogiana 'white falls'
The light was really good in the greenhouse after work today. Been super mild temps in the 50's and 60's. Its fun to look back at last years blogs and see that we had a huge snowstorm this week last year and late frosts that nuked the potatoes. I guess that's one of the things I love about gardening, you have to deal with variables that you can't control.

It takes a keen eye to spot this one in its native habitat... the green and brown camouflage the flowers...maybe I'm used to smelling the stinky side of life to much to notice the rankness of its odour, because the stinkbells never bother me.
The camera plays tricks with this one, I really think you have to call the flower color silver, or white gold.
Been sunny and in the 50's but lows in the upper 20's and I've seen a little frost damage on some flowers.
Lots of blue things blooming and I'll try to share those this weekend if I get around to it.

Golden frits sound like something you would order in a restaurant, no?
This one and all the different forms of F. pudica are up and at em....most be something about yellow and early pollinators working the late winter.
Some rain today, Monday morning it was 28 deg in the greenhouse and 68 in there by the afternoon.
