OT-BIO:Michael Gullo

From: Gullo <tgf@frontiernet.net>

Hello everyone,

      I have been following this list for about a month and I have found
the conversations to be very engaging a nice mix of helpful,informative
discussions with just the right touch of comedic twist.  I have also
appreciated the scope of the iris related topics.  I might have been
content to simply enjoy reading the many postings to the list, but all
to often I found myself wanting to get involved in this topic or that.
So here is my introductory message.
      My name is Michael Gullo and I have been gardening for quite a few
years.  I started quite early thanks to my mother.  I have always had an
iris presence in my gardens and have been quite fond of them for some
time.  My interest in irises blossomed as it were for two reasons-first
as a result of some beautiful pink TBs which were a gift from my sister
(I believe it to be Pink Horizon) -and second because of a chance
encounter with Dana Borglum.  As I've mentioned I had an appreciation
for irises, but I was frustrated by the limited selection at local
nurseries- little did I know just how limited their selection was.  That
is where Dana came in for it was at his beautiful gardens that I came to
see just what variety there exists in irises.  Well that was 11 years
ago and many irises ago.
      For about the last 10 years I've been hybridizing irises (again
thanks to Dana) focusing on rebloom with many other side projects.  I
should mention that I'm just east of Rochester, New York in the town of
West Walworth officially zone 6 but I suspect on the border of Zones5
and 6.  I've heard from many that this is a somewhat difficult area for
rebloom and this year in particular what with our mild-moderate drought
this summer.  Still some managed to make a show this fall and I keep
