Despite my best efforts, the computer reversed the
order in which I thought I was posting the photos, so just read backwards . . .
or turn the computer upside down . . . or stand on your head, whichever is
easier. -- Griff

At the Oklahoma City convention in 2007, I pointed
out my Lavender Interlude to Fred Kerr and asked his advice about what to do
with it, since it was, in my opinion, a good iris, but the flower form was, by
then, dated. His answer: "What are your goals?" After thinking about
it, I decided that it needed a really strong dose of ruffles, so I crossed it
with Keith Keppel's Sea Power. Here are Lavender Interlude and two photos
of a resulting seedling, 08322. The second shot of 08322 is to better show
the silver/cream flush in the standards that matches the edge of the falls.
