PHOTO:AIS:Club:Rhizome Sale

Good morning Gals, and Guys,

You see, I have this camera, and I'm taking baby steps to learn how to use 
it. <g>

Thought I would take this opportunity to discuss our club's, SKIS, rhizome 
sale.  We take orders the day of our show.  There are people on duty in the 
display garden to help people with their orders, but people are also encouraged to 
visit the garden at intervals during the season and make notes.  They also 
order from the show bench. Visitors are informed of the date of the rhizome 

When it comes time for the rhizome sale, available rhizomes are dug from the 
garden and then members supply anything else.  We try to order in anything 
that the members can't supply.  This year our supplier didn't get the iris to us 
and many iris people went home disappointed.  

A club member, Irene Hughes, coordinates the order, rhizomes, dig dates, etc. 
 In the enclosed picture, the bags lining the driveway are those pre-orders 
taken at the show.  These people were contacted to pick up their orders the day 
of the sale. 

Further down you see the tables.  Rhizomes, left overs from these digs and 
more, are displayed in short cardboard boxes.  They are listed alphabetically 
and many have pictures stapled to the boxes. 

This is all set up along the tree lined drive way of the school where we have 
our show.  The display garden is in close proximity for easy digging of 
forgotten treasures, the trees provide shade until mid-afternoon . . . and a good 
time is had by all!

I took several picture, but this one best illustrates the bags of irises 
waiting to be picked up.
