Signs of Life - Dutch Iris.

I spotted some of my dutch iris coming up.  Growing up on a farm - Our parents would take us for ride too look at all the corn, wheat, and other items that were growing.   As a kid - it seemed boring and we had just done this a couple days ago!  How much could it grow in two days!.   But now - I am always anxious to see what is coming up every time I go out to my escape plot - which is what I call the land I rent to plant my bulbs. Now I understand my father's excitement getting out of the truck and looking closely at the sprouts.    I do the same thing now.    The picture is Dutch iris poking through the dirt.   I planted them about 9 days ago.
