    Walking out to water some newly planted items last night I realized I had an Iris with buds showing color!! I am pretty sure that it is a repeat bloomer, but I didn't expect it in November.
    I also have a clematis with 5 blooms and 1 bud. All the other clematis, except for the fall bloomer, have gone to bed for the winter. Crazy weather.

    I separated my irises this year, and they are all sending up new leaves. No buds, here, but I suspect the 35 degree "reminder" they get every night helps them remember what time of year it is.

    I saw a neighbors pear tree with several blooms on it last week.

    I am going to take a picture of the iris in bloom today. It's going to show all those leaves that I haven't raked up, yet.
