Wouldn't it be creative to have a patch planted with all orange and black iris? Have you ever thought about how many orange iris there are? I felt at a real disadvantage at the last show having to show my orange CINDERELLA'S COACH in the pinks class. It did take a third place, but when judges are looking for pink, orange doesn't get the benefit of class namesake. I feel sorry for my beautiful purples having to compete in the blue class. Can anyone tell me why they don't name these classes fairly?
