RE: SHOW: SPIS report

The exact thing happened to me in Hobbs, NM. in 1977. . there was an Iris
Show very near my house and I wandered in. . I had never seen such variety
and beauty. . I can still see an Iris, the likes of which I had never seen,
that has stayed imbedded in my mind's eye. . KILT LILT. Before I left the
show, I had a list of Iris and a list of growers in my area. I was notified
of the rhizome sale in July. . and that set the hook. And I've been reeling
in Iris ever since!!
    Absolutely, the shows are important! BTW, I'm going to one tomorrow with
Luella in Las Cruces!

Congrats! Way to go, Dana and Vernon.

Some people pooh-pooh shows, but, after all, that is how societies
and AIS gain a lot of their members, and it takes a LOT of work to
get all of those stalks to the show in one piece and win those blue

I wonder if I would have ever been an irisarian if I hadn't stumbled
into a Fort Worth Iris Society Show way back in the early sixties.
Seeing all of the colors and varieties I never new existed hooked me
for a lifetime.

Enter the shows. They are for the public.

Somebody like me may walk in!
