            Lecture is normally darker and brighter here as well.  However, what you see is how it looked in Madison.  I would guess that one of the reasons we do tour gardens in all the different parts of the country is so we can see how the iris look in different places with different sun, water, soil, and amendments.  Some colors were much more vibrant and vivid in Madison and others seemed softer, more muted.  If we hadn’t seen photos earlier this month of the same iris in the same garden taken at different times of the day or on different days I might be more surprised, but we have seen the big differences something as simple as taking a picture in morning shade vs. afternoon sun can make. 

            Glad you are enjoying the pictures.  There are more to come as time allows.

Like Yuri, regarding 'Weekend Update', I'm surprised by how different 'Lecture' looks from how I saw it this season. It was one of the most memorable irises for me, because of its screaming red beards.


Here's a photo from my garden (I'm growing it for my most local club) and a photo from our garden at the Detroit Zoo. The colors were very intense and rich royal blues here.


Thank you to everyone that has been sharing photos. Especially from the convention, I wanted to go more than anything this year.
