Really Like the Falls, hate the Standards. Yes I know it's a breeding achievement to get those patterns in the standards, but the colors are just wrong, they look dirty/muddy..... to my taste anyway. I have seen others with this pattern in the standards, and if it is a clear color it looks fine, but when it has brown tones I am reminded of a used coffee filter edge...
Don't see the haft marks you mention, I think the low camera angle obscures those.

Subject: [iris-photos] Raspberry Swirl seedling
didn't take too many seedling pictures this year,
too busy with other stuff. Here is one out of Raspberry Swirl, not sure if
I like it but the standards are interesting (a little squashed from birds) tall
with thick stalks and 9 buds. haft marks sort of bug me on this one.
