Congratulations Patrick,
That's quite a ribbon laying next to it!  :-)  Pretty nice design too.

Subject: [iris-photos] Floral Design

Attached is the floral design I entered in the Sun Country Iris Society show.  The colors of the pansies came out blue in the picture, but they were actually the same color as the plicata markings on the iris.   I can't seem to correct the color. 
 
We had a great time.  I learned a lot.  It felt great to win an award on a design I poured my heart into creating. 
 
I have Joyce Poling to thank for my entering in the floral design section.  She has been twisting my arm for the last year to give her some competition this year.  Well, now she has charged me to twist the arms of two others for next year's show. 
 
If you have never entered this category before, please think about doing it.  It is fun to grow and show iris stalks, but it is very fun to create a new way of showing the iris off - with floral design. 
 
There were 16 entries, and each one was completely different.  It gave me quite a few ideas on how to display iris other than just sticking a stalk into a vase.  With the right design, the iris actually becomes enhansed.
