Hi Jim,

Not me, either.  I like the new, ruffled, confections and fascinating new 
color combinations.  Joe Ghio sent EXPOSE as an extra with our order last year 
and it bloomed with several bloomstalks this year.  It is a vigorous grower and 
a most unusual pattern.  We have been impressed with recent Ghio, Keppel and 
Paul Black introductions and are planning to order some irises from Barry Blyth 
to be sent in February.  We will pot those up and keep them in a greenhouse 
until April or so.  Other great TBs are coming from Rick Tasco (Superstition 
Gardens) and Larry Lauer.  If you like space age irises, George Sutton has some 
good ones.  One of my favorite newly acquired irises this year was Terry 
Aitken's brilliant orange, CRACKLING CALDERA.  I have a big seed pod on it.

Dorothy Willott in Northern Ohio, Zones 5 or 6.
