I KNOW I sent the photo in the e-mail!  It didn't come through in the 
archives, so I'll send it one more time!


Okay everyone, laugh with me!

Even though I haven't been on the list for it's whole existence, in 
twelve years of posts, there isn't even one mention of this 
Schreiner's iris introduction.  :-)    Now, I understand that there 
ARE indeed thousands of irises introduced every year, and even more 
seedlings that get posted on our list, so there's going to be tons of 
irises' photos that don't get listed.

But (and this is the laughing part) I put out a photo request of this 
one to the list in 2006, and no-one had a photo for me.  After our 
club's plant sale, I brought the rhizomes of this iris home and 
planted them for another years' sale.  Maybe now that I have a photo 
of this beauty it will sell better?  :-)  *smile!*

Okay, one more thing... what is a "Madeira"  or what language is 
it?  I checked it out on my computer's translation feature, and it 
didn't have a translation for me.  Any of you linguists or 
geographer's out there know for me?  Thanks!

Hope you're all laughin' with me!  Here, for all iris-dom to share 
and enjoy in the archives --- and in case some future iris sale needs 
a photo --- is Madeira!
