 made late July or early August.  Well, it's early August and the 
 clock's running....>

Thanks, Neil.  I had checked the website first and thought maybe someone on 
the list might have advance word.  Our sale today was very successful, even 
without publicizing the new Dykes winner!

 < The Wister medal seems now to be the predictor....Last year 
 the top Wister vote-getter was MESMERIZER, with CELEBRATION SONG a 
 somewhat close second.  Care to take bets?>

 It's hard to say.  I only know who my husband and I voted for and it was 
neither of these...not to disparage them, but we haven't grown either one and 
I have heard that CS does not perform well in some areas.  (We did order it 
this year...it is such a beautiful flower we wanted to see what it would do 
in our garden.) To be brutally honest, voting for the Dykes this year was 
difficult for us.  Sometimes it is hard to decide between several outstanding 
cultivars.  This was not one of those times, unfortunately.  We believe that 
the Dykes medal winner should perform well all over the country and it seems 
to be very difficult to produce such an iris these days.

My 2 cents worth...
