I am sorry Martin for the way some parents are rearing there children today. They are being raised like we owe them all something. I have two children, and I can give you names of iris gardens that will tell you my kids are welcome any time. It is not the children that should be blamed but the parents who don't know how to love their children. It happens everywhere not just in public gardens. Kids, about 8 of them were playing tag with each other at an AppleBees resturant while 4 moms visited with each other and acted like they had never seen the children before. I do love kids, taught pre-school for 13 years. Sorry about all of your hard work. Thankgoodness you weren't shot!! Shake it off, there is good out there!! Bonnie

The photo of Film Festival was taken at the Detroit Zoo, a public place.
I went back out there this afternoon to take some more digital photos, and I tell you, I just don't understand people. Two couples with about a half a dozen children were having a picnic between the rows of irises. The kids were playing some kind of game, something like the old fashioned tag-your it, running between the rows, thru the rows damaging some of the irises. And the "adults" kept picnicing as if nothing had happened. I walked over to them and explained I belonged to the iris club of SE Michigan and that we maintain the beds and didn't appreciate the kids running thru the irises beds.
They looked at me, and said its public property and there was nothing I could do about it. Also, before I had arrived the kids had pulled up some of the iris markers and placed them back any which way, so whats the problem?
Thats the problem we have with a public garden. I don't know who is more of a problem, the so called adults or the kids damaging the irises. So I apologize for any mis-naming of photos as I can only go by what marker is by the iris photographed as I do not have the iris maps.

I agree with Harold, the picture in the foreground was NOT
Film Festival, the picture in background and to the left
resembles FF, but as Harold said why would and old iris
be a guest, unless it's part of the regular garden and not
in the guest bed.
