My opinion is we are putting to much emphasis on shows as clubs. Our club has
3 shows a year and it's very hard to work in a garden tour because of the
shows. I love to show myself but feel as a judge and pollen dauber that we
must breed iris that will grow and look well in the garden. Of course a
certain percentage will be acceptable iris for the show bench. What I am
hearing from hybridizers is a little disturbing...they say very few if any
judges drop by their seedling patch but will attend shows to judge seedlings.
I personally am breeding for the garden for I know 1-3 percent will be show
iris if I decide to introduce any of them. Only my personal opinion. 
I booked our room for the AIS convention in Oklahoma City. Hope to see many of
you there....
