Hello Colleen and All,
Some people have all the luck..Oh to be in sunny Perth...and shopping too,
what bliss.:)
I bought Bill Shears book recently too Colleen but I got mine from
Amazon.com where I found it was cheaper to buy books direct from the USA,
than it was to find them over here....It worked out with postage etc to be
around the $30.00 Aus mark, which I consider was a real bargain, as you will
too once you have read this book from cover to cover. I couldnt leave it
alone, it is such a good read and the lovely pictures too. Now if I could
only get some of those JIs in the book....But yikes, where would I put
them..:) Hope you are enjoying the weather over there, its been terribly
frosty and cold here, good for the Dwarf iris though...Bye for Now from
Wendy Sargeant, Zone 8ish , Victoria,Australia...P.S. Iris blooming at
present: All the ungulicularis fellows, Mary Barnyard, Walter Butt, Blue
Stripe, and one I have forgotten the name of...the retics are leaping out of
the ground and the dutch are budding up..Well the new one Acupulco is, gosh
it has weird shaped bulbs too.

> Had a happy buy today.
> The only time I get a chance to shop is when I'm in Perth. (At home we
live too far out of town to shop after hours) So since I'm staying in the
city centre of Perth I wandered up the street this afternoon and went to my
favourite discount bookshop looking for a birthday present for a four
year-old. My eye was caught by an iris photo, amazing how I can spot one at
100 paces. There was "The Gardeners Iris Book" by Willian Shear discounted
from $Aust 65-00 to $19.95 (about $US10) I've never seen it before in any
bookshop and was thinking of ordering it from the AIS. Now I've a very happy
irisarian. I have my book and saved a heap of money. Now that makes a good
day. Now all I need is time to read it. Looks good from a quick skim
