Planted a bunch of them last spring, but no flowers, this is the first from this year.

Nice shot. They make great photo subjects.

We planted some down here several years ago and manage to get one or two blooms a year. We got them from my mother who started them in Iowa, moved them to Nebraska, and then they got moved down here. Guess they just don't like Georgia clay all that well.

Nice shots - we have a good show in our back garden.

It's been said that the warm dry conditions in April have made it a good year for Iris's in the UK.

I planted about 50 around the back garden and most of them have some flowers coming, but slowly since our weather has been so cold this spring. This is the first one to go into full bloom.

The Tamron 90mm Macro does a nice job, my Pentax M 50mm Macro does also, but it doesn't meter properly with my K10D, so I only use it on the DS.
