Re: Bloom Report

Hi Rusty,
It was nice to get your bloom report.  It is so exciting when the irises
start blooming all over the place.  We have waited so long for this.  Our
irises have lots of growth finally and lots of buds.  Once the rain stops
and the sun comes out, our garden will be sunshine.  I want to make sure the
camera has plenty of film in it.
