Bill and all,

Both WIDDERSHINS and SHOP TALK from the same breeder (Merle Roberts 
in east of the Cascades irrigated desert WA state)are growing here in 
the same bed.  SHOP TALK even outperforms WIDDERSHINS.  That's saying 
something, considering Walter Moores' and Bill Burleson's remarks.  

I am especially fond of Shop Talk--it is the premium cerise-violet on 
the place and is a fertile breeder.  I have seedlings coming along 
both from its pod and pollen.  Roberts has indicated he has scheduled 
an introduction next year of a grandchild of Shop Talk named 
ROXANNE.  I am really looking forward to seeing it.  A photo posted 
to Iris-photos last year under seedling number 00-131A really caught 
my eye.
