THIS WAS THE ONLY PHOTO YOU SENT THAT I COULD SEE
In a message dated 1/18/2010 4:27:50 P.M. Central Standard Time,
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
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
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?
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?
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
