Re: New TB Iris farm in S. Colorado

Wecome, Pat - I'm always happy to "meet" people from Colorado since my 
husband was from there - but since you mentioned N.Mex. I guess you are not 
originally from Colo.  He grew up in the Wet Mt. Valley in Silver Cliff which 
in the late 19th century was the 3rd largest city in Colo. and almost became 
the capital.Westcliffe is the county seat of Custer Co.  It is now one of the 
ghost mining towns, and any farming there is "dry farming"  I guess you get 
enough rainfall - altho, as I remember suffering the heat   as we drove thru 
Pueblo to go up into the mountains, it is pretty hot in that area.  Colorado 
is a beautiful State. I'm from the East (Lived near Phila., but my mother was 
from N>C> and we spent part of the summer each year at my grandfather's 
"plantation" as I loved to call  his many acres when a child.  Did you attend 
the "national" held there a few years back?  My husband had 2 "Pats" in his 
dept. at the university and we called them "Pat-male" and "Pat-female") to 
distinguish which we were calling!  Which are you?  I will be glad to send 
you the two stamps for your list!  Rosalie nr Baltimore  zone 7 (what zone 
are you -- that is important to put in your email address)   ryfigge@aol.com
