I made it into the big city for my first iris sale and auction on
Saturday and had a fun time (thanks to Susan Boyce for telling me about
it). This was the Utah Iris Society/AIS Region 12 sale. Brad Kasperek
was the auctioneer, which made for lively bidding. Don Pinegar was
there more or less giving away seedlings, of which I got a good
sampling. Looking forward to seeing what they turn into. A very
friendly group of irisarians was there (calling to mind one of the
comments about the benefits of iris gardening). It appears the sale was
a big success. Out on the sale tables I picked up a few iris I can't
find complete information about:

I'd appreciate the missing info, or any additional info, if anyone has
some. My stay in Salt Lake City was unintentionally extended for three
days due to a broken auto thermostat, so I'm just now getting ready to
plant, and would like to know what I'm planting, if possible. Thanks.
