Re: OT: 2003 Region 6 Spring Tour

  • Subject: [iris-photos] Re: OT: 2003 Region 6 Spring Tour
  • From: "Martin Foley" emjfoley@yahoo.com
  • Date: Fri, 23 May 2003 23:32:49 -0000

Original message worded poorly, sorry. These guest irises are in 
bloom today 5/23, eight days prior to the tour. There are 125 guest 
irises at the Detroit Zoo. Again sorry for the poorly worded original 

--- In iris-photos@yahoogroups.com, Martin Foley <emjfoley@y...> 
> The iris garden at the Detroit Zoo has 7 iris plots and a total of 
513 irises. It will be the first stop on this year's region 6 spring 
tour. Created in 1991 by Keith McNames the iris club of SOUTHEAST 
Michigan has maintained it for the past 12 years.
> Tonight, will send to iris-photos approximately 20 pictures of the 
current guest irises that the club received in 2001. It has to be the 
zoodoo soil because after only 2 years the size of some of the clumps 
of guest irises is unbelievable, as hopefully you will see.  
> For some unknown reason the club's Adopt-A-Garden sign vanished 
over the winter. We have had 2 new signs made, but now the tour has 
incurred its first problem. The signmaker omitted SOUTHEAST in 
the 'iris club of southeast Michigan' on the sign. Most of the 60 
participants on the tour will be from Michigan, some will be from 
other clubs. Its too late to get the signs redone, because the tour 
is a week from tomorrow, 5/31/2003.
> Do you think the members of the other Michigan iris clubs will 
believe SE is painted in green on the sign?
> How else can I explain the painter omitting Southeast on the sign?
> I fear the reactionary comments will be brutal, HELP.  
> Martin Foley, Iris Club of SOUTHEAST Michigan.
