Hi all,
       And you KNOW you've been scanning catalogs too often when you can name 
at least three OTHER iris that it COULD be!    I have trouble remembering 
names of people I meet but can rattle off hybridizers last names, sometimes 
attatched to the iris they introduced.    Tsk, Tsk.    A happy 
Quandary...(Keppel, 2002 intro I think...well, at least it was in his catalog 
and very different from any other iris I've seen...)  One consolation is that 
recently I was looking over the iris bed with hubby and he was admiring this 
one iris when I said "oh, I think that one's going because this is the first 
year in three it's bloomed" and he actually replied "ohhh, don't..."
 :  o      !!!!!!!!!
Secretly hoping I've spread the iris virus,
