The days have gotten a little cooler; from the low 80's, down to the low 70's with a hazy cloud-cover. That ten degrees makes a difference, especially since the strong winds of last week have also died down, which is a blessing. These iris came into bloom a few days ago and they are holding up beautifully in the balmy weather. Their colors are so unusual -- a warm yellow shading to a smokey purple-brown. They have that strong, grapey fragrance that is so delicious.
