Gifted Bearded Irisis

A generous neighbor recently separated some bearded iris rhizomes that were descendants from her grandmother's plants, and gifted them to me.  She gave me about 30 plants, which I was excited to plant in my backyard bulb bed.

To plant around some of my other bulb plants, I had to split the 30 plants into two sections, one on each side of the bulb bed.

I'm excited for these new treasures to bloom, but it might take some time, since some of the cuttings were pretty small and will need time to grow.  My neighbor sent this picture to me, so I know the beauty that I have in store.
