	Just a positive note about CANTINA, one of my few TBs. It does well
	in our temperate rain forest climate and it is not planted in a
	raised bed like most of my bearded irises. Right now, it is covered
	with a gazillion feet of snow thanks to the snow god who looked kindly
	on those of us who didn't plan on snow in October....

	The temp. was supposed to get down to -10 F during the night that
	translates to -23.33 C. Not too bad for this time of year except that
	the blasted wind chill makes it seem like -40 degrees and blew my
	balsam wreath (that I made!) off the front gate and into the road...
