Another member of our club came up withthe idea of iris-izing carols, 
and Jeanne Plank did the words for "Thornbird" and others.

Glad you enjoyed.

I am sure that S-A, or variegated/color break, or lace will probably 
always remain "niche" irises, but beautiful niches. Mesmerizer is 
still my favorite S-A iris. As it and Thornbird grow in my garden, 
Mesmerizer is even more worthy of the Dykes than Thornbird is.
