April Showers - bring May flowers

Things are starting to bloom in the flower bulb portion of the farm.    I am growing irises, dahlias and gladiolus bulbs to sell on ebay.    

Here are some of the plants that are blooming.

Stellar Lights Bearded Iris.     This is a very deep blue-purple iris.

Seapower - this is another bearded iris - with a light blue color

This variety is called Tiger Honey - this is a yellow bearded iris with stripes in the falls.

Beverly Sills Bearded iris - this variety is a light pink color.

Red Asiatic Lily - these bulbs were planted last year and this is the first year they have bloomed.

One of the varieties of Dahlia's are blooming.  It looks like a cactus variety but I am not sure what the name is.

Gladiolus - There are two varieties that are blooming -  One is Passos which is a plum color and the other is Fiesta which is orange with a yellow throat.
