Northwest Progress has not bloomed her increase is good no rot. did not 
acquire till last year. Blue Suade Shoes died the second year I owned it in 
the mid 90s I think. Did not replace. Best Schreiners blue here year in year 
out is Honky Tonk Blues. 

> blooming out (iris suicide).

Lonly Hearts only one I'm growing. of these. It's ok but disapointing 
performance this year with blooms. 

> are lying down on the ground.

Silk Brocade doing well here. Blooms and blooms. Stalks kinda short for my 
taste. Crowned heads not producing many stalks. Maybe four blooms to date. 
Maybe got one anther of pollen. Don't have CS.

Never seen this one will look for.

Don't have AF. Impressed with Arctic Express this year except branching not 
long enough to properly display blooms. Lots of em though.

I've been hearing a lot about this one. Have not seen.

Used Satan's Mistress pollen today from the one you sent me on Dusky 
Challenger. DC impressive every year here. "Two hands huge" this year. Think 
I'll love this one forever. Even without many buds, it knows where to put the 
ones it does have.

Lemon Chess opened it's first bloom here today. Clump in friend's yard is in 
near full bloom soon. Mostly crossed it with Corona Gold today. LC would 
benifit from heavier substance. Everything else in her yard is later than 
mine. What an enigma.
Sea Power bloomed yesterday. Not so grand this year. Used some pollen anyway. 
River Song laying down but 2.5 inches of rain causes that when it opens 4 at 
a time and so often. A performing Maryotte. Also impressed with En Guarde. 
Alabaster Unicorn is good. Large flower. Tall stalk. Triple socket on top of 
most. Some triple sockets on lateral branches. It got some LC too. Local 
Color is the Kepple performer two years in a row. Good here. Velvet Shimmer 
went on most plics I did today.

We're having a garden tour/social at the Lauderdale's home this Sunday 1 til 
4 pm. LC may be in full bloom there. You will be a welcome guest if you 
decide to come. If you do I'll send directions. Most iris look poor there. LC 
is gonna look great. No judges in club so no vote's but will create some good
