Hello all,

This is my third year at attempting to bronze a bearded iris flower. 
Yes, like baby shoes.  Sparing you the long history, I'll get to the
point.  I've run out of irises.  Our bearded season in Oklahoma City is
over.  I'm closer than ever to perfecting this bronzing technique and I
need more irises.  Smaller flowers have shown the most potential.  SDBs,
IBs and MTBs (in that order) have worked best so far.  The TB's tend to
sag under their own weight.  The freshest flowers have the best
substance and strength and they hold up better in the plating tank.

Do you have the time to help me with this?  I need a few MDB's, SDB's,
small IB's and MTB's mailed to me while still in bud.  Of course, I'll
pay postage and handling and a "per bud" fee.  Contact me off-list with

Still reeling from winning Queen of Show in Oklahoma City on May 10th
with ROBUSTO (Paul Black, 1984), winner of the Primo Firenze in Italy a
few years ago, a beautiful orange TB with show stalks and the rare
ability to resist fading in our strong sunlight,
