Re: AIS:Bulletin

Hey, Speaking of what's in the bulletin...
  Is there an article that goes with the seedlings on p.36?  I didn't see it... I'm very interested in more info on this Mego sdlg. AM-00-0547.  Is Mego the breeder?

  Woke up to a white mulch this morning! Not much, but I hope it's all we get 
for the winter! It's supposed to be 34 degrees outside so it's not 
surprising that the snow is very wet! We've had enough rain that I've not needed to 
water the seed pots since the initial first few days.

Received the Bulletin in the mail yesterday. (2-3-2006) Hope everyone is 
able to meet Bruce's challenge on page 39! 

In addition, anyone that has children or grandchildren, plant a few clumps 
to sacrifice to the children. Let them explore, touch and learn to love the 
iris. Maybe we can breed our own new members! 

Unfortunately, I've come to treat my iris garden more like a chemistry lab 
than a garden! Sigh! Because of my breeding program, I always caution people 
. . . don't touch, don't groom, don't walk on the bed, careful you don't 
bump, etc., but I don't want to ruin the thrill of the garden for the children. 

Last spring, after all the regular instructions, my son and I took the two 
girls into the garden for a tour. My heart stood still as one, in the thrill 
of the moment, took off across the garden in a dead run! But I couldn't 
yell, I couldn't say a thing! She was running due to the excitement of spotting 
a gorgeous iris! She just couldn't wait! 

Yes, she broke an iris stalk! And of all the hundreds of stalks in the 
garden it was "the one!" But I want their experience to be one of sheer 
joy. I want them to "get" grandma's addiction! 

They will be 6, 3, and 9 months. I can hardly wait to share Gracie Joelle's 
first iris season. Daddy call's her "Jo-Jo" but I call her a potential iris 
addict! She has such beautiful expressive eyes, I can hardly wait! 

Ah, the beauty of spring . . . when you're an unrestrained iris addict! 
If you don't cross them, you can't plant them!
