Antique Iris

Dear Fellow Irisarians,
This is my first posting since joining the iris-l.
It is so very interesting to see what people around the country are 
doing concerning iris.
I am an old geezer of 61. I have been growing iris off and on since 
childhood.I can't remember a time when I didn't love flowers.
I placed my first iris order, I don't know how long ago, from Long's 
Gardens in Boulder,CO. Two of my first ones were LUCREIA BORI and 
CHEERIO. I would very much like to have them again. Does anyone have an 
idea as to who might have a rizhome of either or both for sale?
Another antique I am searcing for is LORD LAMBOURNE.
Years ago I enjoyed following "The Diary of a Plain Dirt Gardner" that 
appeared for many years in "Better Homes & Gardens".Written by Harry 
O'Brien it was a wealth of garden information and inspiration.
In the May 1934 issue he said"I worked,head down, for half an hour.I 
looked up-and bless my soul-an iris had popped open while I was 
working. It wasn't open when I had pointed out the bed to visitors an 
hour before. It was LORD LAMBOURNE,in buff and amaranth. A little later 
Maggie and walked back in the garden and we found LENT A.WILLIAMSON,a 
dependable big reddish purple, was out." 
Ever since reading that I have been wishing that in my garden,too, LORD 
LAMBOURNE would pop out.
Yours truly,
Vernon H. Johnson
