Good morning GTers! They were a long time coming and now they're almost finished after less than a fortnight! They're very pretty but I don't think I'll be trying these Dutch #iris again! Have a wonderful start to the week everyone! 😀

@charlottejhurst - Morning Charlotte! I'm making very sporadic appearances here on GT at the moment! Hopefully I'll get back to normal before the end of the week! 😀

@pelly - Good morning Jane! Yes, I thought they'd flower for much longer! Didn't help that I was away for the first week either! Oh well! 😀

@flof1952 - Good morning Pauline! Mine neither actually, other than my Flag Irises in my pond! It's my first year for Bearded Irises and they don't look like flowering unfortunately! Was most disappointed with these though as I planted lots of them! Enjoy your day! 😀

@Keely - Morning Keely! Yes, maybe I should have staggered the planting of the bulbs to get them to last a bit longer? Enjoy your week in Wales! 😀

Nothing to see here! Just updating my plant database! May have filled this pot with a few too many bulbs methinks! 😀

No such thing as too many bulbs in a pot if you ask me!!! ☺

@Hawick1514 - Hehe! We shall see Stephen! I think I've definitely been a bit over ambitious with this one! Oh, and you should see my gladiolus pots! Could hardly get any compost in them! 😀
