Re: REF: Garden Design Magazine

From: HIPSource@aol.com

<<  The April issue of Garden Design Magazine has a very good article about 
 Premio Fierenze iris competition in Florence, Italy.   >>

Not to sound peevish, and heaven knows it is good to see SOMETHING on bearded 
irises in any of these rags, but did you really think it was all that good, 
Bill? I thought it was pretty thin. Very nice layout and pictures, however, 
with a darling if somewhat pornographic closeup shot of the heart of an iris 
bloom with all the parts labled nicely. Looks like an historic iris, it does, 
with that deliciously noisy haft----so irisy those little stripes and just 
think how hard people have tried to eliminate them----and that velvetyness 
and that enchanting coral chenille beard! There is a nice bit at the end of 
the mag on Ogata Korin's famous and very wonderful gold and irises folding 
screen, and a nice article on Roberto Burle Marx, than whom few garden 
designers were more innovative.
