Re: Griff's messageTB more pasture iris

I just have to comment on what Griff wrote about Donald's posting.  So 
many people just write, "It's pretty" and nothing more.  That does not 
tell the hybridizer or the rest of us what characteristics made it 
interesting to the writer.  Griff made some very enlightening and 
interesting comments  and asked a question.  I read Griff's posting and 
then went back to look at the photos because I had missed something that 
Griff noticed.  I am sure that the hybridizers really appreciate 
comments such as Griff made because it will help them to determine if 
they are producing iris that are marketable.  I love this type of 
comment and feel it is well worth my time to read the message.  I hope 
all of you who have comments that make me actually think about the iris 
will continue to send them.  I also hope all of you will continue to 
post photos too as my greedy eyes feast on them.;

In the foothills of the Cascade Range with not a single iris blooming now.
