My first Queen of Show was Eastertime who has not bloomed at the proper
time to enter in a show since then. I had cut and even refridgerated
iris for several days in preparation for this show and on the morning of
the show I went out for one last cruise through the beds and lo and
behold there she was. She had opened a single terminal bloom overnight
and was standing there in all her glory. I usually give credit to GOD
because all I did was cut her off, wipe off my fingerprints and block
her straight in a bottle. What a thrill!
