What Else is Blooming....

Hi all,

I just took a stroll around the back.  One clump of Iris missouriensis is 
in bloom, but two other clumps are not even showing any obvious buds 
yet.  In the woods, Iris cristata is in bloom, and in the sunny rock 
garden, a purple clump and another clump of yellowish Iris suaveolens are 
in bloom.

I had to move most of my Iris versicolor this spring, so I don't know 
whether we'll see flowers from those plants or not.

A few clumps of Ipheion 'Charlotte Bishop' are still in bloom.  So far they 
are not weedy here.

Arisaema triphyllum and an A. ringens are in bloom in the woods.  Trillium 
are also in bloom there, TT. grandiflorum, recurvatum, flexipes, sessile, 
luteum, and cuneatum.

The tall bearded irises are showing lots of scapes but no colors yet.  A 
Camassia is shooting up scapes under a walnut tree.
