Re: Calender

Concerning ident. of the iris pictured on the calendar (which I find 
very convenient in size and format, too, by the way) I am frustrated 
by the absence of same, too.  Inquiry of one knowledgeable "inside" 
person brought the answer that the reason for no ID of the calendar 
iris was because hybridizers whose flowers were excluded were (might 
be?) jealous that their creations didn't get the publicity which 
others got free of charge.  Or, to put it more charitably, AIS didn't 
want to give free publicity to some, to the exclusion of others.  I 
have no idea whether this has is a reason for the non-ID decision. 
Personally it seems a poor reason, but.........  Meanwhile I continue 
to like and use the calendar, which our club also buys in quantity 
for the members.   When it comes to irritation over non-ID, I feel 
the same way about the AIS postcards.
