 to see hybridizers working on? >>

Linda, I frankly don't think my personal taste or interests are mainstream 
enough for anyone to factor them into a hybridizing plan. 

The only personal hybridizing goals I've had were to cross Iris tectorum alba 
with Dykes' ' Moonlight,'  to cross Cayeux' 'Numa Rumestan' with a strong 
near-white pallida, and to cross Iris Nelsonii or something similar with a clean 
white pseudacorus, crosses conceived aesthetically and intellectually rather 
than from any sound understanding of genetics. 

Has anyone in Region 4 seen the Newscast recently? I thought it was published 
in December but have not had one arrive here since late summer.
