I have neither the experience nor the expertise of many on this list, 
but I do have an opinion :-), FWIW.

As usual, I seem to be out-of-step with the world, since I saw no 
comments on this one - (SDB 01-07-1). I like both the form and the color 
on this one. I am just starting to expand into SDB's, but I see few pics 
of SDBs that have form of that quality, so I seldom get "taken" by them 
as I often do with TBs. With that form and its dark colors, I'd buy it 
in a heartbeat for my garden.

(01-35-3) Of the three that I saw this morning, this one got most of the 
comment from others, and it was my least favorite of the three. I did 
like the peach veining, but on this one, at least, I did not like the 
open standards.

(01-24-2) Lovely in every respect. Stunning blend of colors. I could 
find a place for it in my garden, for sure!

It's great fun for me to see the things that you and the other 
htbridizers are developing, so by all means, keep the pics coming. The 
downside, of course, is that I see so many beautiful irises that I 
cannot have. Perhaps I am not discriminating enough... That is one 
reason that I seldom comment on the pics I view. I suspect my opinion is 
of little value. However, I know what it feels like to post pics and 
have no one respond. One wonders if folks are more annoyed than joyed by 
  one's postings. Most of the pics I post are not compositions, anyway, 
just "mug shots" where I can show as much bloom detail as possible. I 
take them for my future reference and also in case, I decide to try to 
sell a few after retirement as an income supplement. I hesitate to do 
so, however, because that might take some of the joy out of it all.
