Hi Chuck,

I'm putting them on my wish list!  Unfortunately, TBs weren't the only 
victims of our miserable winter this year.  Your little one, TWIST OF 
TWILIGHT, who you generously allowed me to name for you, is now barely 
clinging to life.  I thought it was dead, but I spied the tiniest hint of 
green at ground level yesterday, so perhaps it's on its way back.  I sure 
hope so!  RUBY ERUPTION, which you also sent me last year, is all 
pineappled up but definitely still alive.  YAY!  I'd guess I lost 80-90% 
of last year's acquisitions, and I was so certain I had a good cultural 
practice going after my great success with my '00 purchases.  I had 
almost no losses last year and was dealing with more 1st yr plants than I 
am this year.

I intend to add more of your Canada-born children to my garden, Chuck.  I 
will always have room for vigorous, tough, and lovely irises.  Thank you 
for addressing the special needs of us northern climate iris lovers.
