It was Sunday about noon. I had already moved the party to Monday based on a forecast for rain and a deluge on Friday. Home from church I walked into the bright, sunny garden. My heart sank. Did I do the right thing. As it happens I did. By 5:00 PM it was raining and didn't stop. Thunder rolled and lightening flash then the wind picked up and started blowing under the Gazebo driving my friend John and I inside with our Guinness.
I'm glad I captured a few new blooms on the Canon! I am also glad that most of them withstood the rain.
'Ballet Performance' is a lilac-rose plicata with great form at substance. The stalk would be wonderful in a show. The stalk is sturdy, nicely branched and with nicely placed buds.

Borglum's 'Seneca Snowdrift' is bred in this climate. That's a good indicator that an iris will flourish here. It is an impressive well ruffled pure white.
