	Yes, the author of the original article (May '99) was Barbara
	Perry Lawton and she answered Clarence saying that the TB
	irises shown and named in that May issue were i.d. by David
	Schreiner and he assured her that they were correctly named.

	She said that maybe the climate in Oregon was the reason that
	the appendages were missing from the photograph. She also
	noted the difficulty in photographing flowers.

	I do not grow THORNBIRD. Having seen it in Colorado and
	Oklahoma in different gardens in both places, I must say
	that it looked different in each garden. I thought it was
	one of the most unattractive irises I had ever seen and
	cancelled my order for it.

	Clarence also corrected the information set forth in the article
	concerning the iris borer (not Kathy :)). Ms. Lawton said she
	stood corrected on that point.

	Good-night all,

	Ellen (snowing here again and really cold and the garden is
		presently under white mulch - the best kind)
