To those of you who were at the AIS Memphis Convention and also to those who were not!:

The Memphis Marriott provided unique entertainment the whole time 400 +/- people were there for the American Iris Society Convention last week.  For the third year, a pair of Canadian geese built their next in a huge planter next to the secondary entrance in full view of the glass corridor outside the banquet/meeting rooms.  When we got there, there were three eggs (I have a picture of her turning the eggs) and they did the necessary sitting without getting very upset at the amount of traffic/gawkers.

Everyone there checked on them on a regular basis, made small talk in the elevators and meeting rooms and the hotel staff kept the glass of water filled so mama could have a drink.  One the last day of tours, the first egg hatched in the AM and the third one in the evening while the banquet was going on and many people kept running to the window to report.  It was almost as much fun as the gorgeous iris tours!

Here is mama and babies the following morning (Tues, April 30) for those of you who already left the convention or those who couldn't go!
