Hi, Kathryn!  It is true that I am behind in my Hybridizers postings, 
but so far I have only two new ones to post. Hardly anyone responded to 
my letters, but I do plan to follow up. Sorry that I am not familiar 
with the two you mention, but I will certainly find out from our local 
people, who know a LOT more than I do!

I am curious--are you (or your husband) related to any or all of the 
Mohrs of iris fame? And I would like to know whether H. C. is the son of 
William. I know that David and Kenneth are H.C.'s sons, tho. There is 
also a Mary Mohr in Colorado.

an early Spring too! Have lots of gardening to do this year!!
