Here on the S.F. Peninsula, we've had a rather cold winter.  Still, the 
reticulatas finished about two weeks ago.  This year, all the reticulatas, 
including a reticulata hybrid, danfordiae and 'Katherine Hodgkin' bloomed at the 
same time, looking very pretty together.  This was my idea when I planted them 
all in a single pot, but most years they frustrate me by blooming in sequence.  
Still in bloom. but coming to the end of its season is Iris suaveolens.  All the 
other beardeds are still a long way off.  No other irids are in blom for me yet 
this season.

Reticulate irises started to bloom here in the greater Washington, D.C. area 
this week.
