A Tale of Two Seasons

Here are two pictures that tell a tale:

I Reticulata - Diamond Rise Garden - April 3, 2015
I Reticulata - Diamond Rise Garden - March 17, 2016
This is the very same clump of Iris Reticulata in the same garden. The bloom this year is two and half weeks earlier.  Projecting that forward and barring a surprise bitter cold snap, I have some planning to do!  When friends ask, when is your Iris bloom party, I usually say, the first weekend in June.  This year maybe the 2nd or 3rd weekend in May is a better bet.
