TIP OF THE WEEK: The Iris-L web site
For those who are not aware of it, there is a rather extensive site on
the worldwide web associated with this list. (Actually, it is my
gardening site, but it doubles as the official Iris-L web site.)
There you'll find, among other things:
* a copy of the welcome message that you get when you subscribe to
Iris-L, and which you are supposed to read and save. If you lose it,
you can find it here (click on "About Iris-L").
* a complete listing of iris catalogs that appear in the Shopping Section
of the AIS Bulletin, along with their addresses and other info.
* collected "bios" of Iris-L subscribers
* a listing of Iris Societies, including all the sections of AIS.
* a glossary of iris terms
* links to all iris sites on the internet, and many general gardening
sites as well (click on "stepping disks" at the bottom of the page)
* pages devoted to the different types of irises, with photos!
* the Cyber Cork Board, where Iris-L subscribers can post pictures
for others to see.
* information on the list archives, allowing you to access any messages
that have been posted to this list since it began in February.
People often post to the list asking "Where can I find..." or "Can
someone give me the information on..." The odds are usually very good
that the answer is on the Iris-L web site! Recent examples: iris art,
how to access the archives, and info on what is considered off-topic.
If you have web access, please take a few minutes to familiarize
yourself with this site. It can save you (and others) time and trouble
in the future.
Enjoy the list, Tom.
