       You need three little men in lab coats: 1. one with tweezers & 2 hands 
to remove the stamen - which contains the pollen; 2.  one with three hands to 
gently hold the standards away from the stigmatic lip, into which is placed 
the pollen; 3. another to carefully pull off the standards and falls, and 
clean up the whole darned mess.
       While these three little men in lab coats are busy, you can immerse 
yourself in the hot tub!  While there, begin reading "The World of Irises" 
(which you ordered from the American Iris Society storefront; search "Iris", 
then AIS) ...your life will never be the same, and you will become a devout 
member of the IrisInsanityClub.
