Dear Iris(Kathleen?)
     FIRST OF ALL, a lovely name...now is Iris your first name or a nickname 
you give yourself?   Is Kathleen your first or last name?   I'm glad you 
enjoy the pictures...I love taking them!   The digital camera we have is in 
fact not OURS, (not really) it belongs to our business but we have it at our 
house alot.   (I wonder why?)
; - )

    Secondly... how did you ever get 1500 ladybugs?   It sounds like a great 
idea since I have PLENTY of aphids myself... since my 2 year iris collection 
is still managable, I've been out there running my fingers up the fans and 
squishing the buggers...but I know that won't continue once my collection 
    BTW...I'm very excited...a seedpod formed on my cross of WILD JASMINE x 
BLAZING SUNRISE!!!    BAsically, BS is a rebloomer meaning I will cross a 
rebloomer with ANYTHING that's open at the same time...and WILD JASMINE was 
    It should be interresting...I'm not wild about plicatas but WJ is a 
particularly nice one.   And both BS and WJ grew SO WELL...if I get even a 
decent rebloomer I'll grow it as my "first child".
