Well, the weather has been unusual here in central coastal California, but then the weather here frquently is. The winter was wetter than usual, and the rains continued into early spring -- I blame that on El Niño. The only unusual bloom was Iris suaveolens blooming simultaneously with Iris danfordiae. But, it was just the one flower. I thought I'd have a disappointing flowering with the suaveolens, but no, after the reticulatas went through their complete cycle -- for a couple of days they were all in bloom together (so pretty!), the suaveolens covered itself in blossoms. Such a sight -- the plant totally covered with blossoms for a couple of weeks. It must like rain. Other than that, the progression of flowers has been more or less typical. But, I think that the protracted winter may delay the flowering of those plants which wait for real warmth before spurting into blossom. David E.
