Good Morning Lois!
	My various thermometers had temperatures ranging from 28-33 deg F 
this morning. Except for 1 SDB, PLIM WINE, all blooms looked fine this 
morning. The bloom stalks and buds also look good.  I notice that 
foliage on quite a few plants may have some frost damage.  The have dark 
green spots the length of the foliage or the entire leaf has turned dark 
green.  This occurred primarily on foliage without bloomstalks.  I am 
curious how this will affect the plants.
	Last night I cut several blooming stalks and  brought them in the 
house.  I have never had so many iris in the house! It is glorious!  
Today my husband took a bloomstalk in to work.  Perhaps this will attract 
more iris-lovers.  I cut bloomstalks with 1 bud about to open and put 
them in a cool place.  There are still some things which could be cut 
tomorrow.  It is primarily ELEANOR ROOSEVELT and INDIAN CHIEF.  I have 
quite a bit of both.
	I cut a blooming stalk of INDIAN CHIEF which is 42" tall, has 3 
well-spaced side branches, 1 finished bloom, 2 open blooms, and 4 buds 
about to open.  These were cut from the plant at the corner of my yard 
which the truck ran over.  It turns out that the great surviving unknown 
iris of my "SAD STORY" was none other than INDIAN CHIEF!	
	I wonder if Linda Mann has tried to grow INDIAN CHIEF!  I think 
it would defeat the ROT QUEEN!
	I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.  What time of day do you 
think you will come?
	I am trying to send this to the list and to you. I hope it works.
