Way to go, Gerry!

Barb, in Santa Fe, where we've had rain, snow, wind, cold, wind, and wind, and 
the shows are still many weeks away.

One of the 4 stalks I took in to our (San Fernando Valley 
Iris Soc.) show was a Mesmerizer with two spent blooms and 
two buds in the process of opening. After cleaning it up as 
much as possible I spent over 1 1/2 hours blowing warm 
moist air on the buds. I managed to get both open, and 
got a Blue and Best of Section (Novelty TB), and it was 
runnerup for Queen of show (getting two out of six votes!).

Not bad for a stalk I almost left home.

The winner was the BB  Hi.

Gerry, feeling GOOD!
