Merrily Smith,that's a truly charming story in her bio, which wasn't
OT, by the way. about your mother's garden of long ago and your care
for the remnants of those iris today. That has to be a fun project,
however frustrating, trying to ID the historic iris. You don't live
all that far from some people who are real experts in historics.
Maybe you could hook up with some of them, visit gardens, etc.
Meanwhile, welcome to iris-l. I hope you'll enjoy and profit from
it. And don't overlook connection to the HIPS website for some good
stuff, incl. pictures, about historic iris. Again, welcome!
