Good Afternoon Colleen,
Your bloom season definitely was better than ours in NE! Only about 30% of our iris bloomed this
year, and flower quality was terrible due to late season frosts in early April. It was nice to hear Robin made it out
to visit you, as she is a valuable member of the Greater Omaha Iris Society,
and participates in Lincoln Iris Society events when she is able. Thanks for your postings and photos!

TB bloom season is nearly over for most
people. We did a fairly late transplant of half of our stock, so will have
bloom for another couple of weeks if it doesn’t all cook. Has been over 35oC
(95oF) for the last few days and won’t cool down til Wednesday. However having
some bloom later than usual has had it’s advantage as I’ve been able to do
crosses I wouldn’t normally be able to do, and get mid season pollen onto very
Hasn’t been the best bloom season here
because of the drought. Many Iris Soc members here report only 50-60% bloom.
The highlight of our bloom season was a
visit by Robin Shadlow. Great fun.

I’m a bit
late putting this up, as the South Aust Iris Show was 2 weeks ago. However one
of my seedling florets was awarded Reserve Champion for the show.
This is very
much a keeper, being a cross between Momentous Occasion and Freedom Flight.
Has 7-8 buds,
and a good clean grower, nice branching.
hadn’t been watered all spring and we’re in a drought. Has looked good every
found in this incoming message.
