Apple growers use blossom degrees to plan horticultural practices.  Their formula is for 
every degree over 46(?), they add up the totals daily until it reaches 1,000.  One 
thousand, meaning full bloom. Does anyone out there wish to figure out an iris bloom 
formula??  Maybe someone can get a government grant to do this and he/she can afford to 
buy $45 rhinzones.
