Thanks so much for that thought, Marsha.  I continuously am amazed at 
what it does for me to plant a seed -- a little dry thing -- and 
watch it sprout, take to earth, and become a gorgeous flowering 
plant.  Not to mention our favorite, rising out of a dry old rhizome 
to become a breathtaking, exquisite flower -- each one different in 
sometimes subtle ways, sometimes spectacularly new.  It's why I'm so 
excited about hybridizing.  What better grace of Nature than to 
become its partner in creating something altogether new.

Thank you for just being there, my iris-loving friends.
