<< I can see it now -- a flood of catalog requests from Iris-Listers
 "would she dare?"
 The answer is -- YES! >>

What I can see is a flood of checks made out to Sharon, along with orders for
the famous fleur de puce.  

A hundred and ten years from now people in far away space stations will be
talking on the Galaxy Internet about Sharon's famous fleur de puce called
THINGS TO COME.  The list members will all add comments such as: "Can you
believe that before the cultivar THINGS TO COME there were no puce-colored
irises? Now they are everyone's favorite."  

Someone will remark that the term was really Clarence Mahan's----and will be
corrected by someone else, probably a 22nd century Queen of Rot on the planet
Irideae, noting that the term "fleur de puce" was coined by the learned and
clever Anner Whitehead.  :) These are the "things to come."  Clarence Mahan
