Two December 16th surprises...

My reblooming diploid [24 chromosome] Miniature Tall Bearded iris named 'Cricket Song' is still insisting on blooming up close to the foundation, even though the foliage has just about completely gone dormant.
Also the late flowers on 'Tristan' ornamental strawberry are still ripening fruits!!! Even though they're small and very firm, they're still pretty tasty. 
I expect that the colder weather predicted to be coming this weekend will probably put a stop to these two, but it's been fun while it lasts!
