My local show is tomorrow. I'm thinking about cutting out early to make
crosses. It's not supposed to rain tomorrow!
I'm not having a good spring. Even though I was able to take pictures,
it was drizzling the whole time I was out. Nothing dry enough to cross.
It rained all day yesterday also. The wind whipped everything around.
Pink one toughed it out.
I'm having a lot of trouble with pain in back, knees and legs. Not able
to stay out as long as I'd like. Also, I seem to forget to write the
photograph list so the only way I can remember what I've taken is to
upload them and put their names on them right away.
We're something like 4 inches up on rain. It all seems to come when I'm
trying to work in the garden.
I wish I was able to put that type of time into the garden these days.
Years ago, I burned the candle at both ends and developed fibromyalgia.
This seems to be the accepted reason for it anyway. Developed sleep
disturbances. I wake up at 3 AM and can't go back to sleep if I don't
medicate. Leads to onset of sever muscle pain. So I medicate.

Very pretty indead Betty!
Hope you've crossed it with sth great!
also hope you are not as busy as i am...
I get up at 5 in order to have everything done, and it's past midnight
and i'm still at the computer, putting data in.

Sorry for the delay, only one pair of hands to sort out 3000
sdlgs.......my brain is starting to feel strange...
exhaustion, i recon...!!!
Have bad takes with the frozen pollen, it must have suffered from the
change of t° each time i pick some to use.
Must not be as quick as you are!
May as well throw the lot away.
So much work for nothing...!
I guess i should stick to the old method: there are enough iris to deel
with in the garden already, why add extra work with a deep freezer!!!

Here a pink seedling. Probably the only one I'll save from the cross.
No signs of freeze damage.
