Mothers day news....Best seedling in Regional

    I would like to share with the group that I had some wonderful news this Mothers day.  I received news on Sunday (Mothers Day) that Ginny and Don Spoon, of Winterberry Gardens, took a stalk of one of my seedlings to the regional meeting in Charlotte, NC.  They have been test growing several seedlings for me and this one in particular was in bloom when they headed down to the regional...They entered it for me (I was unable to attend) and it won best seedling....!!!   This is my first award for a seedling and I was a proud parent all day long....Here is an image of the winning Iris....It is an IB (Chubby Cheeks x Fancy Woman)  and has a creamy white ground which in some years, if it's really happy, it will have a deeper yellowish cast that is really wonderful....It seems to me that the cooler the spring, the deeper the yellow coloring, but that could just be a coincidence..... It is an IB.  I have always thought it was wonderful, but a big thank you to those of you who voted my baby as the best seedling in show....
