>From Tom:
********Do I need a judge to tell me that a clean snow white iris with 
a pure red beard
has acceptable color? And if the judge says it looks ugly and I say it 
looks pretty, whose opinion is going to determine whether I buy it or 

Any thoughts?

Well, I for one definitely fall into a category all my own.  I do not 
see beyond the pure awe of the beauty
of anything in bloom.  I never worry about is it disease resisitant, 
how floriferous it is, etc.  I simply enjoy the wonderful scents, and 
colors without looking at the sepals or falls or structures  I think 
I'm pretty lucky because I would hate to ruin my picture-perfect 
thoughts of any flowers if I had to start judging them in order to see 
them.   And in the end, it never matters to me what anyone else says, 
I do what pleases me!

Happy here in my little piece of the world,  Teresa.
