Hey, Zebra! I have never seen any better advice on showing irises
anywhere...and in such succinct form.  This list definitely ought to appear
in the next AIS Bulletin...at least that's my opinion.  As a person who has
been showing irises for some years and won a few medals and Queens of
Show...I think this advice is SUPER, and will assist anyone who wants to have
their irises win top awards in shows!.  Clarence Mahan in VA
