CULT: Last Man Standing Competition

The following irises believe themselves to be the final cadidates in the Last 
Man Standing Competition at the Burleson empire.

Dusky Challenger
Lemon Chess
Change Your Ways
Edith Wolford

Dusky Challenger opened two blooms on a stalk bent from an effort to reach 
for the sun. 

Lemon Chess believes herself handicapped due to rains during critical bloom 
times when when blooms rotted some of her stalks. However she is not 
complaining and still furnishing good pollen.

Change Your Ways said I can do anything DC can and opened two in the top of 
one stalk and one on a rotted stalk trying in an effort to catch some pollen.

An EW who had already adopted a race strategy of conserving her strength for 
the finish put up two stalks and has yet to open a bloom.

Oh well, the only thing better than bloom at Christmas might be iris blooms 
here in June.

Smiles at yawl, its jist ah rainin another bunch here but I got some pollen 
on em.
