Mike, Here's my take on your last batch. Maybe not as informed as some, 
but just one more personal reaction. A little more negative than 
usual...I like three out of eleven.

cys bb - a reblooming CROWNED HEADS would be great, but the orange beard 
clashes terribly in my eyes

cxaoi1 - prettier than Conjuration, but that's not enough

J-7RE - pretty enough iris and would probably please once it's in the 
garden, but may have difficulty getting from the catalog to the garden, 
not flashy enough to draw attention to itself when surrounded by 
pictures of all the other beauties

Broken Record - broken colors seem all the rage right now, so now is the 
time to introduce this, broken color and a rebloomer - it would sell

j-bz.rejpg - I like this flower very, very much! Probably my pick of 
this litter of 11 :-)

i-66 - Everyone will love this one... what's not to like? Beautiful!

pinkameonare - The blend of colors on the falls is a little "mushy" 
(what the heck does that mean?), but it's distinctive enough to get 
attention and separate from the pack a bit

L-206 - Yuck! What can I say? I hate SAs... I guess I'm too "old 
school", to me they're just deformed. Sorry :-(

renewal - Like this a lot, very distinctive, I'd like to grow it...

REbloom - Nice enough, but not distinctive

REbloomer - AS SAs go, it's not too bad ;-) Those appendages are so huge 
that they at least don't look like an accident. Less obscene than most
