Bloom Report

Dear Listers,
	Things are in full swing around here.  We are on our knees daily praying 
that they will stay that way for our show at Balboa Park in twelve days.

Our last year's QUEEN of SHOW has been showing up a sky full of bloom.  Any 
one who doesn't have this iris should consider adding it.  It's an old one 
called CLOUDS ADRIFT.  It amazes us with its strong, tall stalks and truely 
incredible huge, white, firm, long lasting blooms.
Another  wonder is our third place winner from last year called 
CINDERELLA'S COACH.  What a beautiful orange with tangerine beards!
PERSIAN BERRY is being added to our favorites list since it is so strong 
and the blooms are enormous.  It lives up to its description of blue 
raspberry and smells really fruity.

We are debating out favorite between ALADDIN'S TREASURE and POLISHED BRASS. 
 Being new to arilbreds, its like a kid in a candy store experiencing these 
new to us wonders!  Polished Brass is so intricately laced with veining and 
has plicata sprinkled generously.  How could all of this be on one bloom? 
 Aladdin's treasure is truly a treasure!  The color is rich and velvety and 
you feel like you could look at the bronze wonder forever.  Also blooming 

These are fun.  ALADDIN'S FLAME is a little wonder.  The bright blue beards 
on the gold falls catch your eye.
