This is very amusing, just this Fall I "rescued" a poor Edith W. from a
large bin at Home Depot ($2.00) from among many, many more of her, she must grow
very well somewhere to have become a "commodity" iris already.

Hiacynths bloomin' and TB fans starting to grow up again, just dispatched the
first gopher of the season, looks like Scented Bubbles will be the first TB to
bloom in my yard this year.

Oh, you've gone now and broken my heart. Even though I knew I knew nothing
about irises, I thought I knew that EDITH WOLFORD was pretty. And now you
tell me she's not pretty? She's an awkward shape, topheavy and besides she
doesn't grow worth a toot?
Oh, dear. My life's ambition last summer was to make it to the CAIS rhizome
sale early enough to grab a bit of EW, however tiny. But even though I woke
up in time to arrive fifteen minutes early, she was all gone. Gone!
Everyone else had already snatched her up. Everyone else agreed she was
worth having. Everyone else wanted her, too.
But now you tell me I shouldn't have bothered? She's a snotty girl with
weak ankles and shoulders too fat for her thighs?
