Re: TB: TB sources

Hi all,

If you have not tried Francis and Ruth Rogers wonderful Iris you are missing some
great Iris.  Did you See Halo Everybody in Memphis and the Loving Garden in Falls
Church?  Mrs. Loving said it was her favorite.  It was standing up saying look at
me when everything else was laying on the ground.


 And in Memphis at the West Tennessee Garden.  You can see the rails they used to
                                contain the Iris.
