	I always get a big kick out of the articles that say that bearded irises
start blooming in June and continue through July.  Maybe, that is true
in the states that border Canada.  Articles stating such should have 
the dates changed for the southern states, but that is not the case.  
I think a lot of garden page editors are just looking for 'filler 
material' for the pages and don't really consider the source or the 
misinformation they are distributing.
