 Chris replies:

Yes, we are having the CIS Silent Auction again this year and have added
many new selections to the listings.
(The CIS Silent Auction is a mail in type iris auction which we hold for our
members that live too far removed to attend our "normal iris auction" in
The 1998 listings are contained in the Spring 98 Newsletter and that issue
is in the mail right now!
Happy irising.

TU TU TURQUOISE blooming here too but planted right between a really neat
and distinctive SDB iris, PELE (Aitken 1993)... and another lovely SDB,
WIDOW'S VEIL (L.Miller 1994)
