Re: OT-CHAT: Quiet times

How can you even contemplate doing housework in peak bloom season (sorry,
forgot your place was on the market). We've had a magnificent bloom season.
Really regret that I've had to come to WA  for another week and so will miss
a lot of tail-enders of the TB.  Spurias and La looking good.
One of the most beautiful irises I've had bloom this year is one of Kevin
Nilsen's. He may have created a lot of beautiful reds and browns but this is
a beautiful cream "Top Cream". Wonderful ruffling and substance and form. We
will be listing it next year. I so often regret that circumstances made him
give up iris breeding and wonder how much of his good stuff has been lost.
Have lots of nice big fat seed pods coming along, will try and plant some
without drying this year, to see what happens. Want to breed some really
nice blue dwarfs and medians.
We've been realy frantic with garden visits, orders etc. Oh, to be able to
afford to do it full time. Admittedly this week in WA is giving me a week to
recover, as I only have to think about my job and myself for a week.
Currently our home is housing 4 generations, so it is very interesting but
The weather has been weird for this time of year. Very unseasonably foggy,
warm and humid. I quite worried about how much rot will show up in the next
few weeks. Looks like we're heading for a continuation of the 'La Nina' and
another big inland wet.
